Primevil - Smokin' Bats at Campton's (1974)

Produced in 1974 at Moe Whittemore's 700 West studio, Primevil's Smokin' Bats at Comptons, is one of the heavy rock monsters of the Midwest. With a heaviness that sounds like Black Sabbath lead by two virtuoso guitarists Jay Wilfong and Larry Lucas. Their chemistry can be heard on "Hey, Lover" allegedly composed and recorded in one night in Whittemore's New Palestine studio. Legend has it there used to be hundred count boxes of this record floating around. At least one thrift store was reputed to have had multiple copies of the lp at one time. Today, it is relatively scare and commands about $300 value of among both psych and heavy rock collectors.

Good solid wild Hard rock in the vein
of Early Cactus, Stack or James Gang.

No "Black Sabbath". Chris must have mixed up what he was listening to.

Way cool band pics too
