When bassist Nick Simper was unceremoniously fired from Deep Purple in the summer 1969, he wasted little time in getting back on his feet. After a brief stint with the Marsha Hunt band, he formed Warhorse, along with ex-Hunt bandmates Mac Poole and Ged Peck. Musically similiar to early Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, Warhorse achieved a degree of success in Europe, but sadly, never got their LP's released in the States. With Simper's aggressive bass lines,the screaming lead work of Ged Peck, the swirling Hammond organ of Frank Wilson (who incidentally, replaced their original keyboardist, future Yes man Rick Wakeman), Mac Poole's drumming and vocalist Ashley Holt, they forged a style that was heavy, progressive, and fresh. It's unfortunate they didn't get the exposure they deserved, as the band was very good. Warhorse lasted long enought to release a second album "Red Sea" in 1972, but folded shortly after.

Here is Warhorse-if you like Deep Purple and Uriah Heep, then put this CD on, turn up the volume and jam on it! Apparently formed around the bassist and the early vocalist of Deep Purple, there are definite parallels to that band, but really they more closely mirror Uriah Heep. This is not to say they are a cheap knock-off of that band or that Ashley Holt's vocals (thought almost dead on for Deep Purple or the Heep again) are without power of their own. Stylistically the album is saturated with towering, cathedral-like keyboards, but there is also opportunity for soloing on guitarist Ged Peck's part-although he tends to favor the rhythmic power-chord approach while the main solos are given over to Frank Wilson, the keyboardist. The power tracks are the heavy, funky "Vulture", "Burning" (a great Peck solo on this), the primal scream of "Ritual", and "Woman of the Devil". The less-heavy, more interesting tracks are "No Chance", a great ballad of sorts; the awesome "St. Louis", a rock-out that echoes Steve Miller (think "Living in the USA"); but for me the best track is slow-burn of "Solitude" where everything good about Warhorse gelled into one gloriously haunting track (Holt is especially outstanding here) that will stay with you long after you shelve this CD for something else to listen to. The bonus tracks are great additions. I can't say that the live versions give you an idea of the power they evoked on stage; for the most part they sound exactly like the (usually superior) studio versions. "Miss Jane" is interesting because it signals the less heavier approach they were to take on their disappointing follow-up, "Red Sea". The live version of "Solitude" is shorter and almost rushed. Peck's guitar solo is still great, however.Read more ›

The liner notes credit Warhorse with talent and innovation, saying they were among the Heavy Rock bands of the early seventies and worthy of some credit. When the first album was released under the Vertigo label, the band found themselves being compared to Black Sabbath, also on Vertigo. Heavy guitar aside, however, Warhorse sound nothing like Black Sabbath. As the notes point out, Warhorse had a Hammond organ. In fact, if you want comparisons to contemporary heavy bands of the early seventies I would say look no further than Uriah Heep. There are several instances on this album the Warhorse sound very similar to the Heep, and during one track I couldn't help but think of Vanilla Fudge's album "Renaissance".

Two main differences, however, would be guitarist Ged Peck's playing style, which sounds very much as though he graduated from the Ritchie Blackmore School Of Guitar. The resemblance to Blackmore's style and sound is notable on at least three tracks, especially on "Ritual", which has a guitar solo and rhythm quite similar to Deep Purple's "Wring That Neck" (almost a direct rip-off in one part). It should come as no surprise then to find DP's original bass player, Nick Simper, as the leader of the Warhorse group. Perhaps he just had to have a Blackmore-esque guitarist along with a Hammond organ. The other distinguishable sound of Warhorse is the vocal effort of Ashley Holt. A guy who can scream out notes when he wants to, Ashley Holt has a distinct voice, though not always in a favourable way. On "No Chance" he sounds more like he's half reading, half singing in a bored tone. The lyrics sound equally boring. Ashley Holt generally does not have an exciting voice in my opinion, though when he gets going, as in "St. Louise", he can let it rip.

With Nicky Simper (bass) of the original Deep Purple lineup as the founding member, it's little wonder that this album's work is very close to his former band. Singer Ashley Holt sounds like a cross between Rod Evans and Ian Gillan (complete with patented scream) and Mac Poole has the early Ritchie Blackmore guitar sound down to a tee. The songs are organ-driven heavy rock in the very tradition of Deep Purple and Uriah Heep. Fans of those bands are almost sure to be won over. This album is a gem of early UK progressive hard rock, and before the band turned to a more R&B style on Red Sea. Just as Rod Evans proved his talents with Captain Beyond, so did Nicky Simper prove that he was a hard rock soldier to be reckoned with. It was Deep Purple's loss. This album rocks!
