Digitally re-mastered deluxe edition of this 1976 debut by the super trio featuring Bob Welch (Fleetwood Mac), Glenn Cornick (Jethro Tull) and Thom Mooney (The Nazz). Paris were signed to Capitol records and put into the studio with seasoned producer/engineer Jimmy Robinson (Detective). The recording took nearly a year and the results were spectacular. Unashamedly reminiscent of Led Zeppelin, the band's style focused on powerful, crunchy riffs, laced with a funky undertow. But it wasn't all about the music as Bob Welch's bizarre, some might say, spooky lyrics provided yet another murky depth to the package. With references to both religion and metaphysical inspiration, the songs make for captivating listening; check out 'Black Book', 'Beautiful Youth', 'Rock of Ages' and album centre piece 'Narrow Gate (La Porte Etroite)' for some of the best examples of mid-seventies hard rock crafted by any band this side of Led Zeppelin.
