Bassist Nick Simper saddled up this rock act in 1970 after succumbing to the

revolving door that was Deep Purple's 'human resources' dept. Landing a deal

with the hip Vertigo label, the band got straight in and recorded an

eponymous debut (also available on Angel Air) followed by 'Red Sea' the

following year. Akin to Simper's old band and fellow label mates Uriah Heep,

with a dash of Black Widow thrown in for good measure, the set features

self-penned compositions - offset somewhat bizarrely by a cover of Shirley

Bassey's 'I (Who Have Nothing)' - in a heady organ-fuelled brew with

stabbing guitar work and strong, melodramatic vocals from Ashley Holt,

stoked nicely by drummer Mac Poole (who gets a solo in, the lad!). Hurried

production is the only carp, the inference being that the label had lost

interest in what it perhaps saw as a mid-ranker. This was more than

suggestive when Vertigo dropped the band in 1973. Undettered, Warhorse

returned to the studio, cut demos of new material, and touted them round the

labels. But when a few of the boys (quislings) abandoned him for Rick

Wakeman's band the following year, Simper was tying the act up outside the

knacker's yard. A period piece, redolent of rock of the day, with those last

demos and a live track amongst six bonuses, this is an enjoyable and

nostalgic canter back to hard rock heyday.

From the opening, this album displays some superb craftsmanship. The highlight of the album has to be Back in Time, with it's hard, angry vocal work and some brilliant guitar work from Pete Parks. There is also a surprisingly good version of Shirley Basseys's showstopper 'I (who have nothing)'. What slows the album down though is the extended drum solo 'Mouthpiece'. In my opinion, drum solos should be kept for live gigs only. Saying that though, the rest of the album rocks at a furious pace and is well worth investing in from all fans of early hard rock. If you like the Zeppelins, Purples, Heeps, and Sabbaths of this world, then you will almost certainly love Warhorse. Try it.

Warhorse were the band set up by Nick Simper after he left the original line up of Deep Purple and despite the liner notes proclaiming a whole new musical direction, it is more of the same, one part is the same as the extended Mandrake Root that Purple used to do live.

Originally released as a swirl label Vertigo lp it is very much a collector's item now.

This cd contains extra tracks from this overlooked band.
Well worth the money.
