It might sound like Babe Ruth is a legendary baseball player from Baltimore, but our 'Babe Ruth' is a rock group from Hatfield, England and once hailed as rising stars of Seventies rock. The group was formed by guitarist Alan Shacklock, who wrote most of the material on this debut album released by Harvest in 1972.

Attractive Janita 'Jenny' Haan handled the vocals and the rest of the band included Dave Punshon (keyboards), Dave Hewitt (bass) add Dick Powell (drums). The album did well in North America where it went 'gold' and, for a while, the group seemed destined for major career, although they finally split in 1976. Among the eight tracks is a version of 'The Mexican' a song also covered by Jellybean Benitez in 1984 with vocals by Jenny Haan.

With a striking sleeve design by Roger and Martyn Dean, this is an attractive and collectable package, fully restored and a powerful testament to a great outfit. In recent times the group has reformed and recorded a new album, all part of the Babe Ruth revival.

»First Base« von den britischen Rockern von BABE RUTH erschien ursprünglich im September 1972, erreichte in Kanada Gold-Status und verkaufte sich auch in den USA sehr gut. Mit dem Album feierte die Band ihren größten Erfolg, sowohl was den Zuspruch der Fans als auch den der Kritiker anging. »First Base« markiert eine interessante Schnittstelle zwischen Hardrock und Prog Rock. Mit dabei ist der Klassiker »The Mexican«, der sich auf ein Thema von ENNIO MORRICON E stützt. »The Mexican« wurde von zahllosen Künstlern gecovert und geremixt. Unter den weiteren Highlights findet sich die kraftvolle Rocknummer »Wells Fargo« sowie »King Kong« und »Black Dog«. Das Albumcover stammt von Roger Dean, der auch einige Cover von YES illustrierte.
