HORSE - HORSE (1971)

This is a heavy psych rock monster from UK. Originally released on RCA label in 1971 and , like a lot hard rock bands of this era , some of them featured in this blog , was overlooked or had no commercial use for the record industry .The great guitarwork of this album ,is obviously influenced by the UK psychedelic scene .In fact , the British psychedelic rock of this era , seemed like the next natural step of the garage-psychedelic scene.And even if the vocals needed some better touch (for some reviewers), still is a great album .Their drummer ,Rick Parnell ,joined Atomic Rooster after this album. A part of the missing chapters of the great hard rock British history I'd say...
