5 stars This album cooks! One of the few fairly modern jazz/rock fusion albums that deserves a 5 star rating. Gamalon probably needed a better record label or promotion, I'm not sure which. They certainly do not deserve obscurity. All instrumental with memorable melodies. Points of reference would be Gongzilla (without the vibes), Bon, Dixie Dregs(without the country influence) and early Level 42(the instrumentals). Just a great collective offering. Everyone plays with passion and finesse. A drummer's delight, a bassist's delight and especially highly recommended for guitarists. I'm not sure which guitarist is the soloist, but I must mention both George Puleo and Bruce Brucato. Great chops. Check out their video here at progarchives.com. Serious business. Can hold their own with the greats such as Holdsworth and Morse. I've noticed several used CD copies on amazon.com for no more than $6. Get it while you can because it'll be an obscure one to find after you read this. First come first served. A must for any fusion fanatic. Get it for the opener _Billy's Saloon_ and _Cabin Fever_ alone. Also worth mentioning as a GAMALON reference is Ozric Tentacles without the spacey keyboards.

3 stars Gamalon evolved from the 70's Progressive Rock group Rodan out of Buffalo, New York, where drummer Ted Reinhardt, his brother Tom and guitarist Bruce Brucato played together.The group took shape in 1982 and later it saw the addition of guitarist George Puleo and pianist Tom Schuman.Already veterans of the Prog/Fusion, the experienced Gamalon recorded their self-titled debut at Select Sound Studios in Kenmore, New York and the album was released in 1987 on New York-based Amhers label in the triple format of vinyl, CD and cassette issues.

Gamalon proposed an energetic guitar-driven Prog/Fusion, which can be both atmospheric and virtuosic, always led by the twin guitar exercises of the Reinhardt/Puleo duo.With plenty of solos and dynamic changes, ''Gamalon'' is an album based on a typical 80's slick production and a solid bassist, somewhat like a cross between compatriots HELMET OF GNATS and Canadians UZEB, bordering often to the Power Rock sound of RUSH, always with a Fusion edge.The couple of tracks, that feature the presence of Tom Schuman, are propably the ones closer to Jazz/Jazz Rock due to his elegant jazzy piano lines.The rest of the album has evident funky references in the bass lines, which spoil a bit the image of the group, especially if combined with the production level, but the guitar exercises and multiple breaks of the album are the best proofs of a good and talented group, that performs music with passion and technical efficiency.The alternations between the rhythm and solo electric guitars offer some nice highlights, while the drumming of Gamalon's brain Ted Reinhardt sounds confident and at moments impressive.

Not a monumental release, but ''Gamalon'' is among the good album of the Jazz/Fusion field during the 80's, as the style was suffering from plenty of inconsistent and flat releases around the time.Recommended.

5 stars Gamalon started in Buffalo, New York during the 1960's, when drummer Ted Reinhardt and guitarist Bruce Brucato began playing music together at age 12. By the 70's they were joined by Rick McGirr, Victor Marwin and Bill Ludwig to form Rodan, a prog-rock gem of the local music scene. Rodan folde ... (read more)

4 stars These guys rock. I first saw them play at the Three Coins in Buffalo in '88, and followed them week after week playing at the Central Park Grill on Main St., Buffalo. This album starts it all off for me. As soon as I had heard them for the first time I ran out the next day to grab their ca ... (read more)

5 stars A Fusion guitar player I played with fifteen years ago turned me onto this band and I have been searching for more of their music ever since. This is one of the most musical heavy fusion bands I have ever heard (the dreggs - without the country but WITH a little ass kick!:O) I have loved Gamalon ... (read more)
