Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Paladin - Paladin Paladin
Pop Used - LP E 31137 Epic
Rare 1971 Original, Radio Station Timing Strip On Cover, 1A/1A Stampers. Appears Virtually Unplayed. “Brainchild Of Ex-Terry Reid Members Peter Solley And Keith Webb, Paladin Was Born To Fuse. But Even With Their Wildly Eclectic Sound — Incorporating Cuban Rhythms, Jazz, Rock, And Psychedelia, The Quintet Aimed At A Surprisingly Accessible Sound, And Should Have Been A Commercial Monster. Paladin Inked A Deal With Bronze (UK) And Released Their Eponymous Debut Album In 1971, A Set That Still Quivers With Creativity. Recorded Live In The Studio, The Entire Album Has An Immediacy To It, With Even The Downtempo Numbers Filled With Energy. The Opening "Bad Times" Shows They Mean Business, The Latin Rhythms Underpinning An Organ Melody And A Rousing Chorus Traffic Would Have Ground To A Halt For, But Before The Almost Seven-Minute Song Comes To The End, The Band Bounces Into A Santana-Esque Jam Led By The Raging, Psychedelic, Acid-Drenched Organ, Which Gets An Even Bigger Workout On The Rocking "Fill Up Your Heart," A Song Which Must Have Been Absolutely Lethal Live. "Dance Of The Cobra" Slithers Through So Many Genres It's Hard To Keep Track — Latin, Funk, And Jazz, For Openers, And Then Guitarist Derek Foley Strides In With A Fiery Solo Before Webb Launches Into An Extended Big-Band Drum Extravaganza, Which He Deftly Transforms Into Rock, Before The Band Goes Out With A Psychedelic Flourish.” Jo-Anne Greene, AMG. Note: This U.S. Original Omits “Third World” But Has Two Additional Songs Not On The U.K. Bronze LP: “Giving All My Love” And “Anyway.”... more details
 
Paladin - Charge! Charge!
Prog Used - LP ILPS 9190 Bronze
Rare 1972 UK Original Label Housed In A Gatefold Cover. The Glossy LP Appears Unplayed. Cover Is Near Mint. “Having Failed To Ignite The Populace With Their Eponymous Debut, A Set Brimming With Joie De Vivre And Creative Crossovers, Paladin Decided The Only Way To Break Into The Mainstream Was To Assault It. And This They Set About Doing With Their Sophomore Set, 1972's Charge. Far Heavier Than Their Previous Set, The Quintet Seemed Determined To Beat Listeners Into Submission. That's Evident From The Get Go, As They Bash Their Way Through The Opening Track "Give Me Your Hand," A Rhythm-Heavy Number Fueled By Fiery Guitar Solos, Strident Vocals, And A Hard Rocking Sound. The Only Reminder Of Their Previous Musical Predilections Is The Latin Percussion That Bubbles Up Halfway Through The Piece. But Then This Is Much More A Hard Rock Album, With Derek Foley's Guitar Now Given Far More Prominence While The Vocals Stray Into Robert Plant Territory, And The Organ Is Invariably Set Towards Psychedelia. "Good Lord," For Instance, Encompasses Latin Rhythms, A Southern Rock Segment, Space Rock Passages, And Even Pop. "Watching The World Pass By" Is Even More Diverse, Kicking Off In An Easygoing Fashion With A Jaunty Harmonica Solo, Then Running Into Discordance, A Majestic Church Organ, Bouncy Blues, A Country Hoedown, And A Jig Before A Ferocious Guitar Solo Takes The Piece Out In Hard Rock Style. The Beatles Get A Nod On "Any Way," Funk Goes Psychedelic On "Get One Together," And The Roots Of Rock Are Explored On The Barrelling "Well We Might," With The Rest Of The Set Dedicated To R&B Laced Rock. It's A Hard Rocking Extravaganza. The Roger Dean Cover Art Inevitably Excited Interest, The Band's New Hard Rock Approach Garnered Them More Praise, But Not Enough To Prevent Them From Calling It A Day. In Later Years, Charge's Reputation Among Prog Rock Fans Soared.” Jo-Ann Greene, AMG.... more details
