Originally released in 1973, Ham is one of the last albums of Shocking Blue. It was the last album to feature unique guitarist and songwriter Robbie van Leeuwen, who wrote all the songs. Standouts include the sunshine-infused rock ditty "Time Slips Away", "Wild Rose" and "I Saw You In June".
As any fan knows, Shocking Blue's not-so-secret weapon was the one-of-a-kind deep, throaty, powerhouse vocals from lead singer Mariska Veres. Mariska seems reinvigorated by the new line-up and you can hear it in her voice. Delivering the goods with a higher-octane than usual, Mariska and the boys turn some run-of-the-mill covers into rocking anthems.
The arrangements are simple, but the sound is tight and the playing solid. A great re-issue with remastered audio for all Shocking Blue fans and anyone who wants to hear some of the best hidden gems in rock music history.
