Despite being dismissed from Deep Purple, Nick Simper proves that he had what it took in the world of heavy rock. This album positively burns, with each track providing a superbly crafted Simper bass line, complemented by the soaring vocal work of Ashley Holt and the brilliant axe-wielding of Ged Peck. The excitement of the piece bears slight resemblance to an In Rock (Deep Purple), or a Very 'eavy Very 'umble (Uriah Heep) so if you're a fan of early British hard rock, then this album is essential. Warhorse may not be at the forefront of every conversation on early metal bands, but it does not mean that their talent should be forgotten. Fantastic.

Having departed Deep Purple, bassist Nick Simper built a new band in the same five-piece format. This debut album arrived in 1970, the same year that the classic Purple line-up made the breakthrough, 'In Rock'. Comparisons are therefore inevitable. Purple have the edge in terms of material and finesse, but Warhorse are arguably more exciting by being less clinical. The original album consists of seven extended workouts which are consistently very good without throwing up anything that could be considered a classic. Much of their flamboyance is provided by Frank Wilson's organ playing, but the excitement comes from a fiery, uptempo, yet disciplined rhythm section. Guitarist Ged Peck has his biggest moment on the epic 'Solitude', arguably the best track. The bonus tracks boost the running time to seventy minutes, though they are mainly live versions of the studio material and don't add a great deal.

According to the sleeve notes, Rick Wakeman was briefly involved with this band and vocalist Ashley Holt later worked on Wakeman's albums, an indication of the quality of the band. 'Warhorse' is a good value buy for anyone who likes vibrant 1970s hard rock.

I Love this album, heard it when it came out in about 1971, a mate of mine had it. I got it in about 1975 and played it into the ground. It wouldn't play any more but sold it as a Vertigo label original on *B*y that auction place.

Bought the CD and can't believe the quality of the recordings.

Nick Simper ex of Deep Purple at the time, is a major feature in the group. The Hammond, the Strat, the Jazz Bass, the Elgin amplifiers!!! Brilliant, love it.

I notice The Little River Band even covered "St Louis" too.... Amazing stuff.

Highly recommend it.

There were many late-60s and early-70s bands that people remember, although Warhorse is one that disappeared from the scene. They should have been huge as they blew away many of the more well-known contemporaries.
Nick Simper is the main man who is known from his days with Deep Purple, but the two that really stand out are drummer Mac Poole, and guitarist Ged Peck. If you like your drums played, as opposed to just thumped, Poole is your man. And if you appreciate guitarists who play the notes (and at top speed where needed), than look no further than Peck.
The pair are a joy to behold and a massive contrast to some of the garbage today.

I went to see Warhorse several times in my teenage years and this album brought it all back.
The music is a sort of heavy version of Deep Purple with plenty of Guitar riffs and lovely
Organ sounds. If you are a Deep Purple/Prog Rock fan I would highly recomend this Album

Well it had to happen. Bass player Nick Simper gets fired from Deep Purple. Wisely invests in a copy of "in rock", and to cash in on the new found success of his former bandmates in the UK, forms a similar sounding combo playing the same kind of Hammond organ/guitar driven heavy rock. But were they any good? The answer is a big fat yes.Their music may not have stood the test of time as much as Purples, but I really like the opening number (Vulture blood). Starts with this quiet organ introduction before a crashing guitar riff comes out of the speakers to disturb the peace; and in comes Ashley Holts angry vocals. "I'm like a vulture/ living off your neck blood" he sings. Love it. Their cover of the Easybeats St Louis is good too; while Burning is the best song by far on Warhorse, and this fast paced track has a great singalong vocal to it and just rocks from start to finish. Ritual and Solitude are a little too average for my liking; but Woman of the Devil opens with some good organ/guitar interplay. I like the songs chorus saying his womans evil and of the devil. Comes straight out of the blues. Nobody writes words like that these days, obviously, but it makes a change from the recent crop of female R&B/ pop singers that often moan about their men/ex partners anyway.
The bonus tracks aren't as good as the originals, as is often the case, but this record should appeal to those who are into and liked the music of the the first, and especially the second line up of Deep Purple.
