Argent - Hold Your Head Up (Epic S EPC 7786 - 1972)

In 1972 the airwaves seemed to be constantly filled with the sound of Rod Argent's atmospheric Hammond B3 playing, whilst songwriter Russ Ballard sang the lead on the highly infectious Hold Your Head Up, one of the most memorable riff-laden songs of the period. Written by the band's bass player Chris White, the song sold over a million copies, a great achievement for a progressive rock song.
