4 stars GRAVY TRAIN's ("A Ballad of...") is a magnificient work of art and may represent one of the 70's most impressive albums. Combining delicate prog (aka JADE WARRIOR and CRIMSON's "In The Court" ) with well timed and thought out harsher explosive moments and extended jams. "A Ballad Of A Peaceful Man" is filled with heavy "Psychy" guitar, loads of delicious analog keyboard parts and a lot of amazing flute playing. One word of caution is that lead vocalist Norman Barrett has a very distinctive heavy sound which I love but may not appeal to everybody out there. I actually think that my love affair with GRAVY TRAIN's music rests somewhere in the cleverness and beauty of the musical contrast these guys deliver. Essential music for your ears...!
