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 Mercury 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 setting; in contrast, "Where Are We Going" captured the rawness of the group in live glory and "Chicago Lives" a twin–guitar attack. 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.
