The Load Reviews

From: Mark Fonda
'Load Have Mercy' is a superb, ELP/Nice style keyboard-driven instrumental by three Ohio boys who recorded three LPs from '73-'77. The Laser's Edge reissued LHM (the 3rd LP) on CD with one new track recorded in 1994 especially for the CD. There are some very minimal backing vocals, which ironically was the reason the band broke up... they couldn't find a lead vocalist to enhance the band's popularity. The Load was slated to tour as opening act for Meatloaf in 1977 but it fell through due to contractual problems by Meatloaf.
