Three Man Army biography
Following hot on the heels of the demise of their former band Gun, THREE MAN ARMY was formed in 1970 by brothers Adrian Gurvitz and Paul Gurvitz. Their initial effort A Third of a Lifetime appeared on Pegasus Records the following year, featuring contributions by drummers Buddy Miles, Mike Kellie and Carmine Appice.

Tony Newman would eventually join as the permanent sticksman for the rest of the lifespan of this Britsh power trio. Mahesha would be the first production Newman appeared on, initially released in 1972, then reissued with alternate cover art in 1973 as Three Man Army. 1974 saw the trio's last attempt at achieveing fame and fortune with Three Man Army Two. But like the other productions of this band commercial success eluded them also on this occasion and the band folded around 1975.

Just over 30 years later an epilogue of sorts would appear in the shape of the album Three Man Army Three, issued by German label Revisted Records. Featuring just over 30 minutes of demo recordings planned for a rock opera (Three Days to Go), compiled and reworked by Paul Gurvitz.

A Third of a Lifetime
Three Man Army Crossover Prog

Review by AEProgman

4 stars An Overlooked Power Trio with Some Proggy and Psych Elements!

Thanks to a new co-worker, I have been rediscovering some great stuff from the past, Three Man Army being one of them. The Gurvitz brothers (Adrian and Paul) are the core of the trio and are excellent musicians. They were/are veterans from the British rock scene in the 60s and 70s. Their previous endeavor was in a band called Gun which had some mild success, this was their next project.

The music on "A Third of a Lifetime" features some accomplished drummers of the day, Carmine Appice, Buddy Miles, and Mike Kellie. Without getting into a track by track review, the style of the music is of the hard rock nature of that period. As another reviewer mentioned, fans of Cream and Cactus will like this. But there are some instrumental, acoustic, and orchestra mixed in as well, plus some Hendrix style psychedelic elements that makes this more interesting. Adrian's vocals are very pleasant and add to the music. His guitar playing and writing skills are also top notch.

Later the Gurvitz brothers would be drafted by drum wiz Ginger Baker into the Baker Gurvitz Army. I thought this band and album deserved some love as it seems they were under appreciated in my book.

Four stars in the crossover genre.

3 stars Donīt be fooled by the rating. the only reason I gave this album a 3 star rating is because of the style of music, not of its quality. My first contact with the Gurvitz brothers (Adrian on guitar and vocals, Paul on bass) happened when I heard the Baker Gurvitz first, self titled, album of 1974. I thought both were newbies recruited by legendary Cream and Blind Faith drummer Ginger Baker. Only recently I knew they were in fact quite veterans of the british scene, having played in both Gun and Three Man Army long before, Adrian also having played with famous american drummer Buddy Miles. So I was quite curious about their earlier work.

Mahesha was their second album, the first with the classic line up of the Gurvitz plus the excellent services of Tony Newman (Jeff Beck, Rod Stewart, May blitz, Boxer). Listening to this CD today is hard to believe that such good collection of hard/blues/rock went completely anonymous at the time, specially when performed by such outstanding line up. It is ok that their songs were not exactly new or groundbreaking. In fact, it was very much what was fashionable at the time. But this is not a demerit. Mahesha shows that Three Man Army deserved much better luck (or maybe a bigger promotional push), for they were not only excellent musicians, but Adrian was already a mature and versatile songwriter, very good singer and absolute brilliant guitarrist. His guitar shines all over the album with his tasteful licks and solos. More important, he was not the kind of guy to overplay, much on the contraty, he used his vast talent to enhance the songs, not to show that he clould play a thousand notes per minute.

There are no fillers, all songs are good and the production was also top notch for the time. Curiously enough, the songs are credit to Adrian Curtis (his middle name. He would use his surname Gurvitz soon after this release)

If you like bands in the vein of Cactus, Grand Funk, Thin Lizzy, Cream, Mountain, etc. you cannot miss this one. Iīm really glad that ginger Baker rescued them from obscurity when he asked them to start a new group together. It would be a waste of talent to see those guys fade away without a chance. This is not really a prog gem (there is very little prog here in fact, if any), but there is little doubt Mahesha is a blues/rock lost gem. For those who enjoy the style, this is a must have. So, 3,5 stars in the end for PA.

Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
