Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing in gatefold jacket. Trading Places presents a reissue of Sir Lord Baltimore's Kingdom Come, originally released in 1970. Hard-rocking Brooklyn trio Sir Lord Baltimore's highly sought-after debut album is a legendary precursor of the heavy metal genre. A 1971 Creem review of the disc may have been the first to ever use the term. The group benefited from the songwriting and production team of Mike Appel and Jim Cretecos. Appel, the future manager of Bruce Springsteen, and Cretecos, already successful with The Partridge Family. Recorded at Vantone Studios in New Jersey, it was mixed to fine effect by Eddie Kramer at Electric Ladyland, fresh from his work with Jimi Hendrix. Guitarist Louis Dambra co-arranged the material with Appel and Cretecos. He had previously played in the garage band The Koala as Louis Caine. Here, his screeching guitar is a major draw, backed by plodding bass from Gary Justin, as frontman John Garner shrieks his vocals while pounding furious drumbeats. Aside from a tough cover of Ray Charles's "I Got A Woman" and a track inspired by Yeats' poem, "Lake Isle Of Innersfree," the album features heavily-stoned acid rock originals, delivered the Sir Lord Baltimore way.
