Thought from the beginning as a cash-in operation when hard rock began to spread throughout the UK, this LP features a very young band (keyboardist Jon Stoppard was 16 when this LP was released in 1973) performing the sounds of the day. Equinox consisted of Mick Shedd on vocals and guitar, Sid Oldfield on bass, Jon Stoppard playing organ and Terry Waldon as the drummer. Incidentally they are not the ones who appear on the sleeve, where they were replaced by some unknown hipsters, and knowing Boulevard and it's mother label Saga it was probably a stock photo rather than a proper session paid for the occasion.

The album sounds move through the early UK hardrock paths opened by bands such as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath or Led Zeppelin, and although it must be said that our youngsters can't match the playing skills of the bands they mirrored in, it's justice to state 'Hard Rock' as a more than decent effort, and a true rarity even for the conoisseurs of the genre.

Issued from the original master tapes and featuring the original sleeve in better quality than the low budget Boulevard original, this is a perfect chance to add the Equinox to your collection. Remember : only 500 copies pressed!

LP editado sin duda como una operación para generar dinero aprovechando el auge del fenómeno hard rock en UK, Equinox era una banda muy joven (el teclista Jon Stoppard contaba con tan sólo 16 primaveras cuando el disco fue lanzado en 1973) cuyos miembros eran Mick Shedd a la voz y guitarra, Sid Oldfield al bajo, el citado Stoppard al órgano y Terry Waldon como batería. Quienes no son, por cierto, los que aparecen en la portada, en cuya foto fueron reemplazados por modelos desconocidos... Y conociendo la forma de actuar de Boulevard y su sello madre Saga, probablemente incluso fuera una foto tomada de un catálogo fotográfico y no una sesión fotográfica propiamente dicha (y pagada).

Los sonidos del álbum se mueven por los caminos del hard rock primerizo de bandas como Deep Purple, Black Sabbath o Led Zeppelin, y aunque debemos reconocer que nuestros jóvenes amigos no llegan al nivel de destreza de aquellos en quienes se inspiraron sí lograron sin embargo grabar un interesante disco que complacerá a los fans del género.

Editado a partir de las cintas originales y con mejor calidad de portada que el original de Boulevard de serie 'budget', es la ocasión perfecta para añadir a los Equinox a tu colección. Recuerda : únicamente prensadas 500 copias.
