4 stars Oft overlooked prog beauty debut album from Manchester's GRAVY TRAIN. Like their classic 2nd and 3rd albums ("Ballad Of A Peaceful Man" and "Staircase To The Day" and) this debut album teeters on the fantastic fret work of Norman Barratt. Fans of JETHRO TULL will love this album as it is completely saturated with the heavy storming flute playing of J.D. Hughes. Overall this album is a ton more Psychedelic in character than their later albums but that is exactly what gives this one all its charm. GRAVY TRAIN's debut album is really a clash of both blues and prog rock making this a wonderfully original album to sort your way thru. Barratt's vocals are deep and gruff but fitting to the mood of the music which never really sits still. A superb album.
