Cargo - Cargo 2-CD. Reissue of killer 70s Dutch hard rock group with tons of electrifying dual lead guitar battles! This is truly great stuff and features 20 bonus tracks including demo versions and early stuff recorded before the album. Released in anonymity to an unsuspecting Dutch public in 1972, Cargo's lone album became a self-fulfilling prophesy when it disappeared after minimal radio play and no live dates to back it up. But Cargo had already had hits under their original name, September, and their talent would not remain buried forever. In subsequent years, the album became the stuff of record collector dreams, as prog fans ate up its uncanny improvisational transformation of Allman Brothers influences (check out the incredible dual-guitar work of the de Hont brothers, Jan and Ad) out of the American South and into a psychedelicized continuum of space and time both terrestrial and celestial. This deluxe 2CD reissue gives you not only the original four-song LP and artwork, but 14 previously unreleased bonus tracks, their 3 singles under the name September, incredible remastered sound, and extensive liner notes telling the full Cargo story by Doug Sheppard of Ugly Things magazine. Forty years after its release, Pseudonym Records has given this renowned progressive rock artifact a reissue that upholds its legacy. Exclusively restored dynamic 24 bit remastering from the original master tapes. All tracks are recorded under the band name SEPTEMBER. After the recordings the idea came up to release tracks 5-8 on CD2 under the project name CARGO.

This Dutch heavy rock outfit, who operated in the early '70s put out this great album with stupendous stoned guitar workouts / acid jams... Awesome stuff, but this CD also contains 8 additional tracks by the pre-Cargo outfit 'September'... An essential chunk of European rock history and a blast for your ears too!

This unit started out as SEPTEMBER and recorded a few singles that hold no interest to progheads. They then changed their name to CARGO and recorded their sole album. CARGO consist of brothers Ad and Jan De Hont both on guitars, Willem DeVries on bass and vocals and English drummer Denis Whitbread. The music developed here is a seducing hard rock with a killer twin-guitar attack much in the line of WISHBONE ASH around their "Argus" album. The two brothers play delightfully long and cooperative guitar lines that intertwine beautifully (what a pleasure it is to follow in stereo their progress) proof of their long-standing mutual trust and camaraderie.
