Charge - Paladin

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.

Esoteric Recordings follow the successful reissues of the first two RENAISSANCE albums with the remastered edition of this classic second and final album by ILLUSION. Featuring original RENAISSANCE members JANE RELF (Vocals), JIM McCARTY (Vocals, Guitar, Percussion), JOHN HAWKEN (Keyboards) and LOUIS CENNAMO (Bass), ILLUSION came together in 1976 following the death of original RENAISSANCE vocalist KEITH RELF (originally vocalist with The Yardbirds). Recruiting Lead Guitarist JOHN KNIGHTSBRIDGE and drummer and percussionist EDDIE McNEIL, the band assumed the name of ILLUSION (taken from the title of the second Renaissance album) and signed to Island Records.

Their debut album was an updated version of the classical and folk inspired Progressive Rock that had been explored on the first two Renaissance albums. Well received, this was followed by the release of ILLUSION in 1978. Produced by former Yardbird PAUL SAMWELL SMITH, the album was as fine as its predecessor, featuring such material as MADONNA BLUE, WINGS ACROSS THE SEA and THE REVOLUTIONARY.
