3 stars Not really for the progressive rock fan but containing guitar work which was very representitive of his playing while a member of brainbox. Still sounding very raw and raunchy unlike the more polished sound he achieved with Focus Akkerman tackles a few good instrumental cover versions while adding the Akkerman touch, most notable of which are Green Onions and the traditional Hineimatov. Some Bluesy tracks are also featured here which demonstrate Akkerman`s lightning speed guitar abilities which became evident on the earlier " Russian Spy And I " with The Hunters and later on such tracks as Focus I and Hocus Pocus while a member of the legendary band Focus. This is the 1973 re-issue of Talent For Sale and might be hard to find as it is no longer available on CD. It was released on the EMI label in 1999 along with his second album Profile as part of the same package. Highly recomended for die-hard fans of this Dutch guitar god.
