Chariot’s lone musical offering, this eponymous release with its stunning artwork, appeared on the obscure National General label (NG2003) in 1968. The label, which apparently was the musical arm of the National General Cinema corporation, was distributed by Buddah Records and only lasted long enough to issue a handful of records including several undistinguished soundtracks.

Chariot, which evolved out of a '60s outfit called The Knack, are often described as a Cream-influenced blues/psych trio, although to many ears their sound exhibits more than a hint of a classic flower power groove, with some decidedly progressive touches. Although the other band members seem to have disappeared without trace, English-born drummer Pug Baker went on to play with a number of minor bands, such as the RCA-signed Rocking Horse, and Waves, a group that enjoyed a short tenure with Epic. Baker is still bashing the skins, and is currently plying his trade with southern rockers Ghost Riders.
