CWT was an English band that somehow ended up on Germany's Kuckkuck label, home to such acts as Armageddon, Ihre Kinder, and Out Of Focus. This is some serious ass-kicking British hard rock, with the guitarist and bassist doubling up on the keyboards, and some fierce brass parts that were apparently recorded at Motown Studios. Heavy riffing abounds, the singer is rough and aggressive, almost Dio sounding, the rhythm section id solid and the guitar is awesome. Good cover of Love's "Signed D.C." All in all, this is a pretty good example of early 70's heavy rock. Apparently this is their only release, as well as a single for "Widow Woman."
