Warhorse - The Recordings 1970-1974 : 2 x CDs (expanded)

SKU 23-ECLEC 22868
The two albums, from 1970 and 1972, by progressive hard rock band Warhorse, which was formed by ex-Deep Purple man Nick Simper and which sounds a bit like Deep Purple (at least in terms of the quality of what they presented). If you like Deep Purple circa 1972 and the like, you’ll definitely enjoy this. Includes a ton of bonus tracks of demos and live work!

“Formed in early 1970 by former Deep Purple bassist Nick Simper, the band began life as backing band for singer Marsha Hunt. The group also initially featured Rick Wakeman, but he departed the band in April 1970 to join Strawbs. Signing a licensing contract with Vertigo Records, the band’s self-titled debut album was released in November 1970. The release was followed by touring, but the band’s line-up evolved further before the recording of their second album, ‘Red Sea’, issued in June 1972.
Soon after this, drummer Mac Poole departed join Gong and was replaced by Barney James. Warhorse would continue until 1974, but vocalist Ashley Holt and Barney James would depart to join Rick Wakeman in his band The English Rock Ensemble.
The two albums recorded by Warhorse are fine examples of Progressive Hard Rock of the era. They are both featured in this collection, along with eleven further bonus tracks comprising demos and live recordings.”
