4 stars Kenny Driscoll left the band after the eponymous first album, to be replaced by Coverdale look-alike John Sloman. Roy Thomas Baker was no longer in the producer's chair, so the guitars lost a bit of their edge and the band took on a slightly more funky approach. Drummer Dixie Lee is again on great form here and must rate as one of the best drummers in rock.

The first track "Bells of Berlin" was written with Driscoll and is probably the band's best song. Great synth work from Worsnop and Sloman puts in an excellent vocal peformance. There is some great bass/drum interplay again before the song ends with a screaming synth solo.

"The Ballad of Crafty Jack" is Western-style song featuring honky-tonk piano. "Time lays down" has a nice funky bass line and is typical of the "new" sound that the band found on this album. "Hypnotic Mover" is another Driscoll song, fading out with the band's trademark backing vocals with guitar solos.

"Lovely Lubina" is an average track about a prostitute, which takes us into the slower, electric piano-led song "Seasons in your eyes", with orchestral arrangements by Jeff Wayne. Another emotional vocal from Sloman.

"Rivers overflowing" is another funky number similiar to "Time lays down" and again has some brilliant bass/drum work. The final track has a guitar riff reminiscent of "Burn" and again fades out on a nice sing-a-long chorus.

An excellent follow-up to the debut, although the guitar sounds could have been a bit "meatier". Both this and the debut album were re-released on a single CD a few years ago, after being unobtainable for a while. Anyone who likes the rockier end of prog should grab a copy now.

4 stars I recently acquired this album again after having sold my vinyl original during my poor student years. Ahhh the memories - surviving on beans on toast and vast amounts of beer. Anyway. I remember well seeing this band on 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' - they played 'The Ballad of Crafty Jack'. Fantastic track - nice bass, excellent vocals and fat funky synth. This song also featured on a free 'Sounds' LP which as a sampler also featured Boston,Frank Marino and Journey.

The stand out on this album for me is vocalist John Sloman - he reminded me of my two heroes at the time - Plant and Coverdale. He went on to join Uriah Heep - the band who were my first real favourites. Paul 'Tonka' Chapman of UFO fame was probably the best known musician in the band - the others are also excellent in their weapon of choice and in particular Dixie Lee on drums. Dixie Lee - showbiz name surely - he went on to form Dixie Dreggs with Ronnie James Dreggs. Actually he did'nt.

The album opens with a nice uptempo rocker 'The Bells of Berlin' - a song I really like until you listen to the twee lyrics - if English isn't your first language you won't notice this downfall. Next comes the aforementioned 'The Ballad of Crafty Jack' - excellent song. 'Time Lays Down' continues the funky feel with a nice driving bass - vocals particularly Plant-esque. 'Hypnotic Mover' COULD almost have been included in 'In Through The Out Door' - pretty Zep-like if you ask me.

'Lovely Lubina' opens with nice drumming and is another showcase for Sloman. Its another great track and keeps up the feeling of funk-edged rock. 'Seasons In Your Eyes' opens with electric piano and is a ballad - it has a relaxing feel to it and is perfectly acceptable as ballads go. 'Rivers Overflowing' gets things moving again and is probably my second fav song on the album. Nice funky chops and each band member contributes to an upbeat (almost cheerful) song - play it loud!! 'All of us all of you' opens with a riff which MUST have been lifted from another band - ITS SO OBVIOUS!! Fifteen seconds or so (check it yourself) - after that it becomes its own song without any reappearance of said riff. This is an album of its time - 1977 - its not the most original album in the world - but I like it and it works. Is it prog? Who cares?

4 stars Presence

"Firing on all six" is one of those albums which many of those of us of a certain age remember with warm affection. Although with the passing of time it may now sound rather prosaic, at the time of its release it was actually quite exciting and original.

Some of that originality stemmed from the multi-phonic tones of the synthesiser keyboards, something which was still quite a novelty in the late 1970's. By the time of this album, original vocalist Ken Driscoll had moved on, to be replaced by a 20 year old John Sloman. Sloman's introduction brought with it hints of the LED ZEPPELIN sound, especially on tracks such as "The Ballad Of Crafty Jack" and "Lovely Lubina", the latter sounding spookily like the music on the "Presence" album at times. He would later go on to work for a short while with URIAH HEEP, where it was generally felt he was a fish out of water. Here though his high vocals are perfect for the style of music Lone Star create.

The sound of Lone Star (not to be confused with the US band of that name, these lads are Welsh) is fresh, it's exciting. Admittedly it is not particularly progressive, generally sticking to formulaic structures with strong harmonised choruses and sweeping synth or guitar breaks. The opening "Bells of Berlin" sets out the stall perfectly. There is perhaps a hint of ASIA in the power chords and big sound. Interestingly, this song and "Hypnotic mover" were written by the band before Driscoll departed. Sloman however does a wonderful job on making "Bells.." his own.

The eight tracks all clock in around the five minute mark, affording the band a little more space to move beyond the brief pop tenets on which the songs are based. The delicate ballad "Seasons in your eyes" offers the only let up in the pace, the orchestration reportedly being the work of Jeff Wayne.

There are a couple of fillers along the way. "Rivers overflowing" is a rather directionless funky number, although even here the chorus is adequate if not remarkable.

The other stand out track is the closing "All of us to all of you". If ever a track was written to become a band's anthem, this is it. From the opening unaccompanied guitar chords we are immediately swept along by swirling organ and a powerful beat. Sloman rattles out a brief verse and we're into a harmonic "No time to lose" chorus. As the synth solo builds the excitement, the drums lift the pace and the band leave the stage in an ever rising burst of the song title.

Listening to the album now, time has not been as kind to it as it might have been. The bookend tracks still sound wonderful, but the songs in-between have lost some of their bite. This though, for those of us who were there is an album to be remembered with true fondness.
