Dr Ball
5 stars Hello, my name is Dr. Ball. I came across Gandalf's fist a little over a month a go when my nephew George returned from his vacation in the Lake District with good news. Knowing I was a great lover of prog, George sent me this wonderful album and have been hooked on it ever since!

This album is an great collection of folk and prog with a medieval after taste that makes a certain medic want to pounce around the gardens like a merry minstrel. Whilst appealing to those with a Floydian appetite, 'Road to Darkness' is also an inventive and excellent addition to the prog world. To single a particular song out as interesting and unusual, 'Untrodden Ways' is a dirgey psychedelic folk ballad, with what only can be described as a 'pirate rock' flourish - delightful!

If you have not heard this album, Dr Ball prescribes one copy of Baum's 'Wizard of Oz', a tankard of real ale and slap on your cheeky bottom for being so silly.


Over and Out, Dr D. Ball, M.D.
