Great one and only LP by this early 70s band from Calgary Alberta Canada. They were formed from the ashes of a 60s psych band called 'The 49th Parallel, also from Calgary. Danny Lowe-Lead Guitar, Doran Beattie-Vocals, Wayne Morice-Bass & Vocals, Barry Allen-Rhythm Guitar & Vocals, and Bob Ego-Drums. Their music was heavy rock, in the style of BTO or April Wine. The album was recorded in Seattle Washington, where Painter eventually based themselves. After it's release in '73, the band did the bar/club and arena circuit, opening for some pretty big names. A couple years later, "Painter" evolved into 'Hammersmith', who took the same heavy rock formula and released a couple of LPs and achieved some moderate success.
