Baltimoore - 2004 Ultimate Tribute

ARTIST: Baltimoore
ALBUM: Ultimate Tribute
LABEL: Lion Music
YEAR: 2004


LINEUP: Bjorn Lodin - vocals * Thomas Larsson - guitars * Weine Johansson - bass * Ian Haugland - drums

TRACK LISTING: 01 Kill The King * 02 Rock Candy * 03 Beggars Day * 04 Never Say Die * 05 Samurai * 06 Freedom * 07 She * 08 Love Child * 09 Mississippi Queen * 10 Sold Gold Brass * 11 Riff Raff * 12 The Rocker

Bjorn Lodin's Baltimoore are back with their new album, a tribute to a bunch of 70's rock legends such as Rainbow, Montrose, Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy. And that is going to a problem for me. I haven't heard a lot of these songs, nor have I been interested in many of these artists. I grew up on the guys who were influenced by the bands covered on this album, so my points of reference are pretty thin.

The Songs
Another possible spanner in the works is that I don't really like Bjorn Lodin's voice. However, I have to say on this album they definitely sound more at home than the previous stuff I've heard him on. These songs are obviously very close to Bjorn's heart and he puts on a good show. His vocals are better suited to the bluesier tracks, such as Deep Purple's 'Love Child' and Thin Lizzy's 'The Rocker', rather than the NWOBHM styled 'Kill The King' as originally performed by Rainbow.

In Summary
An interesting aspect to this release is the production, which has that 70's sound to it, making the songs sound quite authentic even though they've been recorded in 2003. Unfortunately the packaging is very poor, something you don't usually associate with a Lion Music release. A few words from Bjorn about why he chose these songs would have been nice. One of the better tribute albums but one that will most likely suit the older rockers out there.
