Cargo biography
This unit started out as SEPTEMBER and recorded a few singles that hold no interest to progheads. They then changed their name to CARGO and recorded their sole album. CARGO consist of brothers Ad and Jan De Hont both on guitars, Willem DeVries on bass and vocals and English drummer Denis Whitbread. The music developed here is a seducing hard rock with a killer twin-guitar attack much in the line of WISHBONE ASH around their "Argus" album. The two brothers play delightfully long and cooperative guitar lines that intertwine beautifully (what a pleasure it is to follow in stereo their progress) proof of their long-standing mutual trust and camaraderie.

This album got released in Cd by Pseudonym record and as bonus tracks are included their "September" singles.

Review by Quizzus

2 stars I really like dutch prog, I do indeed! But... this time I was expecting something completely different. What I hear here is jam-band reminding me of uninspired version of... Lynyrd Skynyrd. Yes, the songs are lengthy (but so is Free Bird), however they are just lengthy for the sake of mindless bluesy and lukewarm jamming. Sometimes guitar is out of tune (notably all of the first track) which adds insult to injury. Bonus tracks are even less interesting.

Wanna great dutch prog? Get Alquin, Focus or Supersister. I have no idea how and why Cargo got that high rating there, especially taking in account how great prog for The Netherlands can be, even Golden Earring are better then that!

Review by Igor91

4 stars This is a review of the newest reissue of this album on Pseudonym Records (2012). This version is a deluxe, 2 CD edition which includes all the band's singles under the moniker September, as well as several demos.

The main reason I bought this album is for, well, the album. The biggest problem with this edition is the sequence of the tracks, which is in order by when each one was recorded. This means that the actual Cargo album consists of the final four tracks on the second CD, which has a total of eight tracks on it. Not very convenient when you just want to pop in the CD and listen to it. The only other issue I have with this version is that several of the tracks are really nonessential, and only worth an occasional listen. These include several demo versions of album tracks which are inferior to the ones that actually made it on to the original album.

That being said, I still really like this release. Of course the actual album (tracks 5-8 on CD 2) are the highlight, my favorite track being the soulful "Summerfair." All four tracks are a great example of great, jam-filled 70's rock, with a noticeable European touch. The dueling guitars and nice bass-work keep the long songs interesting. Even some of the singles and demos are good. These include: "Little Sister," "One More Chance," "Run Away," "Lydia Purple," and "Choker" (all on CD 1). "Lydia Purple" is a soulful, superior version to the original from the Canadian band The Collectors.

All in all, an exceptional example of a great band, with a lot of potential that never got the big break it deserved.. Recommended for those who like 70's heavy rock style prog, but with a slightly different, European flavor.

Review by BORA

3 stars It never ceases to amaze me how a relatively small nation in Europe manages to produce a disproportionate number of notable acts. Anything from FOCUS, SUPERSISTER, EKSEPTION, FINCH, EARTH & FIRE to KAYAK, LIVIN' BLUES - ah, just where do I stop? There must be a reason, probably a combination of the gene pool coupled with cultural factors? I am really not sure. Suffice to say that my partner who hails from the Netherlands plays four(!) instruments really well, pretty much instinctively. To add to the mystery, she was not even familiar with any of the bands mentioned above until after we met some years ago - in Australia!

But onto CARGO. At first listen I found the material enjoyable, but somewhat dated. This is a Rock band that enjoys stretching out, bordering on jamming. In a general sense that would sit well with me. Of course, the twin guitars are the most notable feature here, but to liken the band to early WISHBONE ASH is a bit far fetched. A bit like the common trap of comparing any band that features flutes with JETHRO TULL.

The four long tracks held some premise for me, alas the compositions are not very strong. Indeed, pretty average and rather mediocre by today's standards. Back in 1972 one may have found the music fresh and exciting, but 40 years on it hasn't aged well. The instrumental passages lift the game somewhat, but not quite sufficiently to hold my attention.

The second spin delivers the same conclusion as it still leaves me struggling with paying attention. It still fails to suitably engage my interest. In all fairness, watching the band perform live would have added an element without which their recorded stuff remains a bit hollow, underdeveloped. I also feel that had they kept recording, the overall production would likely have substantially improved.

A cursory listen to the bonus material confirms that this disc may be reasonably good, but hardly essential.

4 stars Cargo - Cargo (1972)

Dutch one hit wonder Cargo has a lot to offer for listeners of hard rock / jamband/ psychedelic / progressive. With a steady hard rock sound and production, a bit like how Camel would sound a year later, and four lengthy tracks with some catchy themes and long instrumental sections this album is very good throughout, without ever reaching a zenith. Just a steady listen and a great 1972 rock sound. Some psychedelic flavours, but never 'strange-sounding', well grounded use of experimental effects. On side two the vocals on Finding Out and Summerfair are surprisingly spot on. The remind me a bit of Stephen Stills. The last track Summerfair outstays its welcome a bit; if you'd study this guitar solo you'd end up knowing like every rock-guitar trick in the book haha. Still.. the ungoing steady vibe of the record is also one of its virtues. It's quite nice to listen to, maybe even relaxing. Perhaps this gem is great just because of its lack of a world-changing vision. It rocks. Like a lot.

Review by Ytse_Jam

4 stars This is the eponymous disc published by Cargo, dutch heavy prog band. Cargo consist of Willem DeVries on bass and vocals, brothers Ad and Jan De Hont on guitars, and Denis Whitbread on drums. Born as "September", they has no great success in their early career. Changed its name to Cargo, they decided to release their first and only album in 1972. "Cargo" is a real gem of the underground prog scene, that can be added to the large list of "lonely" masterpieces published by bands virtually ignored by the mass, but really appreciated by prog-heads (such as Space Shanty by Khan, "lonely" masterpiece of the Canterbury scene, released the same year moreover). The disc contains four tracks of very good heavy prog, in which the guitar carpets of brothers De Hont intertwine with funk and psychedelic sounds. So we hear space atmospheres alternating with more heavy and rhythmic sections, following the classic hard rock style while maintaining a reasonable degree of originality (we're still talking about a prog band!). DeVries's singing is fairly anonymous to me, while doing his job pretty well. Particular attention should be paid to the production, which is perfectly balanced and able to enhance the sound of each instrument as only the tube mastering of those years can do. In conclusion, if you appreciate the work of bands like Atomic Rooster or Wishbone Ash, this album is for you.

Vote: 3.75 stars, rounded to 4.

Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars So who's smuggling this Cargo now ? Nobody, so let this be the first review after little bit more than 5 years (!!!), even it's still better than after 6 years.

Album consists of 4 quite long tracks and 8 bonus tracks. At first I thought this has some kind of epic concept story about a ship, or about shipyard, workers that carries cargo from point A to point B, something like that.

Piter (I mean) Willem De Vries provides fine vocals, that's true, even most of the times, these songs are filled by solos. They are the main predator of this album. At first I wanted to mention this in connection to 1st track, but I realized that all of these tracks has fine, long guitar soloing, improvisation-like patterns and other goodies. This suggest to some kind of Psychedelic elements too.

Bonus tracks aren't so good from Prog point of view (even more Rock and even one Beatlesque), but they're enjoyable.

4(-), may be too "classic rocking" for some.

Review by jasonpw.

4 stars In October'06, I got this album for $25.00 through mail order,as I have been wanting to hear it,and when I did, I thought ''What can I say..great stuff! I would call this hard rock along the lines of 1973-era Montrose,as the singer of Cargo sounds like Sammy Hagar at times. But this is mostly instrumental stuff. The song ''Finding Out'' sort of reminds me of the Van Halen song ''Hot For Teacher'' for it's rhythm part. ''Sail Inside'' and ''Cross Talking'' are great song's, along with ''Summerfair'', which rocks out before slowing down towards the end. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this a 4.25. I recommend buying this...if you can find it. As I know, it is still out of print..unfortunately! If any album should have sold big numbers, it is this one. It is too bad that record companies do not promote some of their product too well.

Review by Carl floyd fan
Prog Reviewer

4 stars Sometimes you have to wonder what people were smoking back in the day. How you could space out and let so many good albums pass you by is a mystery to me. This album is no exception, it is very good. It is a little heavy and I would not label it as art rock. Art rock tends to be shorter, more pop oriented songs. These songs are a lot longer and include very long jams. Well, its a shame many of the baby boomers don't know who cargo is when I talk music with them. Many of the albums I have reviewed on this site seem (I am only 20) to have been ignored when they were released. Were people just to stoned and lazy to check out anything beyond deep purple, zeppelin and the beatles? With the lack of musical variety today, I grow jealous of all the possibilities people had in the 70s. So many good bands were passed by back than..spring, CARGO, the flock and so many others.

4 stars If this had been the Cargo album alone , it might have gained another halfstar but the bonus tracks are from their previous group called September actually ruin (a bit) the wholeness of the album. Although not bad in themselves , those tracks add absolutely nothing to Cargo and even ruin slightly the pleasure. On Cargo itself there is no flaws at all if it was not that this is a lone album and a pity they only made this one . Very exciting guitar work from the De Hont brother who have learned to work together quite early in their lives , one can hear it on here. Their interplay is really delicious and they do not try to outdo the other and remind me of the twin lead guitar from Wishbone Ash in their heyday (Argus & Pilgrimmage)

Review by Tonny Larz

5 stars Aaahhh...extremely nice sounds are coming from this very capable dutch outfit:Cargo. They "only" did one album (and apparently some singles and stuff...note the bonus tracks 8 tracks to be exactly!!)...but what an album.....the driving force of the two guitarplayers and the solid back-up of the bass and drum. Actually it reminds me of a hybrid between Wishbone & Epitaph...but still very much their own style.....lots of wonderfull guitaring ...themes....and...ohhh..the vocals are quite nice too!! Plenty of improvising (or so it seems)...in those looong ("Summerfair")numbers. Finally someone (the excellent dutch record label Pseudonym)dared to put it out on cd!! And it is really, a wonderfull piece of musichistory...thank you Pseudonym..keep up the- good work!!! For all you guys (and galls) out there who like their prog/psych "meat" well done!! This is really the meal to enjoy!!! Great stuff!! Highly recommended!!!
Thanks to ProgLucky for the artist addition. and to NotAProghead for the last updates
