Prog Reviewer
3 stars Babe Ruth is one of the forgotten british prog bands from the'70's. Formed in 1971 by guitarist Alan Shacklock, the band had a moderate succes until 1977 when they disbanded, but reformed almost 3 decades later to come with another album. Their first album, seen as the best band had to offer from their catalogue, is a cross between hard rock typical for early '70's, some prog moves here and there. Fronted by great Janita Haan on vocals, the album has some good moments like The Runaways or instrumental King Kong with nice arrangements on keys. To me is not a spectacular release, as many seen this album, I don't know why is puted under major albums from early '70's, is only good and nothing more, realy. I can't give more then 3 stars to this debute, while is well performed and played, is almost average typical heavy prog album from early years of ptog.
