Paladin - Paladin

Paladin
Released in the Spring of 1971, 'Paladin' was the debut album from this creative band. Formed the previous year by Keith Webb and Pete Solley (both ex-members of Terry Reid's band), Paladin encompassed all that was experimental in early 70's rock. Fusing the worlds of jazz, rock and ethnic Cuban music, Paladin's debut album was both powerful and rhythmic, in places echoing excursions by bands such as TRAFFIC, MANFRED MANN's CHAPTER THREE and GINGER BAKER's AIRFORCE. One of the first signings to Bronze records, Paladin shared a home with URIAH HEEP, COLOSSEUM et al and were highly regarded. With this 24-bit remastered edition from ESOTERIC RECORDINGS, Paladin's debut release has never sounded better.

Charge
Released in the Summer of 1971, 'Charge' was Paladin's sencond and final album. Formed the previous year by Keith Webb and Pete Solley (both ex-members of Terry Reid's band), Paladin encompassed all that was experimental in early 70's rock. Fusing the worlds of jazz, rock and ethnic Cuban music, Paladin's second album was both more 'progressive' and hard edged in nature to their debut. Adorned in a striking sleeve designed by ROGER DEAN (artist for YES), the album became known as much for it's sleeve as the excellent music within. Recorded at The Beatles' APPLE studios and engineered by GEOFF EMERICK, the album was Paladin's finest hour featuring the classics 'Give Me Your hand' and 'Anyway'. One of the first signings to Bronze records, Paladin shared a home with URIAH HEEP, COLOSSEUM et al and were highly regarded. This remastered edition from ESOTERIC is sure to appeal to all followers of seventies progressive / classic rock. Our Price: £10.95

Not Fragile / Four Wheel Drive
Bachman–Turner Overdrive are a Canadian rock group from Canada, that had a series of hit albums and singles in the 1970s, selling over 7 million albums in that decade alone. Their 1970s catalogue included five Top 40 albums and six Top 40 singles. The band has sold nearly 30 million albums worldwide, Many of their songs, including ‘Let It Ride’, ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’, ‘Takin' Care of Business’, ‘Hey You’ and ‘Roll On Down the Highway’ still receive play on FM classic rock stations.

Not Fragile is the bands third album and was released in 1974. The title is thought to be a response to Yes' Fragile. The style has been described as a cross between Mountain and early ZZ Top. The arrival of Blair Thornton (replacing Tim Bachman) gave the band a true second lead guitar to pair with Randy Bachman, and dual-guitar solos are prominent features. It proved to be the group's most popular album, and is the only BTO album to have reached #1 on the US Pop Album charts. ‘Roll On Down The Highway’ and ‘You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet’ were hit singles.
