It might sound like Babe Ruth is a legendary baseball player from Baltimore, but our Babe Ruth is a rock group from
Hatfield, England and once hailed as rising stars of Seventies rock. The group was formed by guitarist Alan Shacklock, who
wrote most of the material on this debut album released by Harvest in 1972. Attractive Janita Jenny Haan handled the vocals and the rest of the band included Dave Punshon (keyboards), Dave Hewitt (bass) add Dick Powell (drums). The album did well in North America where it went gold and, for a while, the group seemed destined for major career, although they finally split in 1976. Among the eight tracks is a version of The Mexican a song also covered by Jellybean Benitez in 1984 with vocals by Jenny Haan. With a striking sleeve design by Roger and Martyn Dean, this is an attractive and collectable package, fully restored and a powerful testament to a great outfit. In recent times the group has reformed and recorded a new album, all part of the Babe Ruth revival. Classic Roger Dean cover recently updated by Martyn Dean exclusively for this Repertoire release. Booklet with authoritative and extensive liner notes by respected author and journalist Chris Welch.

Also available: FIRST BASE (CD), FIRST BASE (LP), FIRST BASE/AMAR CABALLERO (CD).
