Catalog no.: SVVRCH0000044

Item ID: 521237

Obscure hard rock power trio May Blitz spun off from British blues-rock act Bakerloo, but after founding members quit to join Vinegar Joe, Uriah Heep and Colosseum, lead singer/guitarist Jamie Black recruited fellow Canadian Reid Hudson on bass, scoring a major coup when Tony Newman joined on drums, following stints with Jeff Beck, The Hollies and Sounds Incorporated. Their self-titled debut, released on Vertigo in July 1970, is heavy psych with a blues underpinning that edges toward metal, an overlooked gem that will appeal to all who like their rock down 'n' dirty, trippy and bluesy, hard hitting and free from excess.

Also available: MAY BLITZ (UK) (LP).
