Fresh from their US tour supporting Black Sabbath, Brooklyn based heavy metal trio Sir Lord Baltimore expanded to a quartet for the recording of their self-titled sophomore album, released by Mereury in late 1971. The new addition was guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist Joey Dambra, brother of guitarist co-founder. Louis Dambra, adding a dual guitar element to their hefty sound. The album begins with the epic “Man From Manhattan,” a symbolic allegory of a resurrected Christian icon in a new settins: in contrast, “Where Are We Going” captured the rawness of the group in live glory and “Chicago Lives” a twin guitar anack. Somehow, the band did not survive long after its release, though Joey later recorded with John Lennon; this reissue spins at 45 RPM for maximum fidelity.
