3 stars Uhmmmm.... Listening the first three albums of Baker Gurvitz Army for me is a very interesting treat as I am being brought back to the days when rock music experienced its glory days in the seventies. All three albums mean something personal to me because all of them truly represent the kind of music that I experienced during the day - it's something that I would recall like a bluesy southern rock music. Since the second album the band recruited another musiciian and no longer power rock trio. I would prefer the band consistent with the three-piece band actually as this is much more attractive. However, musically I did not see any problem with it.

The opening track Hearts On Fire (2:30) is a short classic rock music relying on the work of Adrian Gurvitz' guitar work. The second track Neon Lights (4:35) is in similar way. Only when the album reach track3 'Smiling' I can sense the pop-style of the music. As the music is quite slow in nature, followed as well with another slow tempo track 'Tracks of My Life'. Then when it reaches fourth track 'Flying In And Out Of Stardom' (2:17) we really feel like being invited by the band to stand on rock waves with stunning guitar solo by Adrian. Oh this track is really an excellent rocker! This flows nicely to 'Dancing The Night Away' (3:25) in an energetic way.

As the name implies 'Thirsty For The Blues' (5:15) definitely a blues outfit using piano and guitar. I really enjoy this blues style by BGA. The album concludes with another rocker 'Mystery (4:02).

Overall, it's a good album even though there is basically no progressive elements at all. Keep on proggin

Peace on earth and mercy - GW

3 stars The third-and-final album from the Baker Gurvitz Army doesn't quite live up to the high standards reached on the outfit's previous efforts, but it's still an enjoyable work. Formed after the two, London-born Gurvitz brothers Adrian(guitar) and Paul(bass) absorbed ex-Cream drummer Ginger Baker and the curiously-named singer Mr Snips into what was essentially a new formation of their own Three Man Army outfit, the Baker Gurvitz Army produced slick, dynamic and technically-assured rock music tinged with a hint of prog colour. They were always much more classic rock than prog-rock, though sadly they failed to find true commercial success during their brief career. They did, however, enjoy a loyal live following and plenty of positive critical support, especially for their excellent second album 'Elysian Encounter', yet by the time 'Hearts Of Fire' had been issued in 1976 the writing was on the wall. The death of their managed would prove to be the final straw, and by 1977 the Baker Gurvitz Army, one of the most under-appreciated of all British rock groups, were no more. As a swansong, the straightforward rock sound of 'Hearts Of Fire' proves slightly misleading, showcasing the more accessible side of the group in what was surely an attempt to broaden their appeal after the heightened progressive textures of 'Elysian Encounter', yet fans of 1970's rock should still find much to enjoy. Highlights include the hard-rockin' title-track, which exhibits yet more powerful playing from Adrian Gurvitz, the up-tempo 'Dancing The Night Away', and, finally, the live favourite 'Wotever It Is'. Although they may have been just a footnote in the overall history of rock 'n' roll, the Baker Gurvitz Army sound has stood the test of time remarkably well. Those who take the time to explore all three of their highly-recommended studio albums(plus a handful of recently-released live offerings) will discover a treasure-trove of diamond-sharp rock 'n' roll and experience a group blessed with true musical talent.
