4 stars "Babe Ruth" debut album is still one of my favourites from the early 70's mixing powerful rock, symphonic and progressive genres. I love the voice of Jannie Haan who has one of the most powerful and awesome voices of all time. Mood on the album moves from the high adrenaline forward rock number "Wells Fargo" (which is one of the greatest rock tracks of all time IMHO) to the soft symphonic melodic piece titled "The Runaways". They even attempt and pull off a fantastic rendition of FRANK ZAPP's "King Kong". Leader of the band, guitarist, and principal song writer, Alan Shacklock was a huge talent and may IMHO be of one rock's most underrated musicians. This album has it all and is just an amazing piece of 70's progressive rock. Absolutely essential album.
