Baltimoore was formed already in 1987 and ever since its line-up has consisted of many well-known musicians. Baltimoore consists of Björn Lodin and musicians he has chosen. On this album he has chosen ex-Europe drummer Ian Haugland to sit behind the drums. Thomas Larsson (Glenn Hughes) plays the guitar... and Weine Johansson plays the bass.

This album contains covers from many well-known bands, such as AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Kiss, Montrose, Mountain, MSG, Nazareth, Rainbow, Sweet and Thin Lizzy. Because the songs are classics, you can't make really drastic interpretations of them. On this album all of the covers are apposite — each song manages to reproduce the feel of the original performance.

Although all of the songs are apposite, I'm sure everyone has their own personal favourites on this album. My listening recommendations are Kill the King, Beggars Day and Samurai to name a few. Unfortunately when the album is approaching its end, songs start to deteriorate. It isn't Baltimoore's fault, though — the original songs aren't so good. Baltimoore should have chosen better songs for the end of their 6th album... Well, maybe others like them and others don't.

Björn Lodin's voice is hoarse — a little reminiscent of David Coverdale, Ronnie James Dio and Jörn Lande — and it fits perfectly to the songs. Baltimoore's Ultimate Tribute is one of the best 70-80's rock tribute albums I've ever heard. If you're friend of the old rock classics, this album is for you.
