By the time Lobby Loyde formed the Coloured Balls in March 1972, he was already a 12-year veteran of the local music scene, Working his way through R&B legends The Purple Hearts, psychedelic heroes The Wild Cherries and onto the bluesy Aztecs, Loyde had well and truly established his reputation as Australia's pre-eminent guitar master, After releasing 2 singles on the Havoc label, the Coloured Balls Signed to EMI, With help from producer Ian D, Miller and highly experienced engineer John Sayers the band knocked out Ball Power in a couple of weeks, One of the great progressive hard rock LPs of the era, Ball Power really had a lot going for it: great songs, inspirational playing, attitude to burn and an experimental edge that would have frightened the hell out of any lesser band, The overall excellence of Ball Power makes for quality listening all the way through, The songs range from the crunching, melodic hard rock of 'Flash' and 'Hey! What's Your Name' to the simple, raw rock'n'roll of 'Mama Don't Get Me Wrong' and 'Won't You Make Up Your Mind' (a proto-typical punk ball-tearer at a breathtakingly brief one minute and 32 seconds) and a raucous cover of the Jerry Lee Lewis standard 'Whole Lotta Shakin'', In between there are the sleazy blues of 'Something New' and 'B.P.R.' plus progressive, guitar-heavy monsters like 'Human Being' and 'That's What Mama Said'.
Ball Power is presented in a 6 panel digi-pak with a 24 page booklet filled with rare photos & liner notes by Ian McFarlane, It has been digitally remastered with 7 bonus tracks - including the 16+ minute live version of G.O.D.
