First ever legit vinyl reissue of this impossible to find private psychedelic hard-rock album from 1973. Remastered sound, colour insert with rare photos and liner notes by David Wells. Includes digital download coupon. Charge were a British power-trio born from the ashes of local South Coast heavy-blues bands Baby Bertha and Sweet Poison. Comprised of Dave Ellis (guitar), Pete Gibbons (drums) and Ian Mclaughlin (bass), they played heavy rock influenced by Hendrix, Cream, Free and Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac. In 1973 they cut a demo album of which 99 copies in blank covers were pressed and later distributed between family and friends, with a few of them also shipped to record companies in what proved to be an unsuccessful attempt at earning a recording contract. The music is raw hard-rock with unrestrained guitar, Lemmy-esque vocals and heavy psyche progressive touches.

Also available: CHARGE (CD).
