4 stars 'Salisbury' has been given the same treatment as the debut, although in this case the track listing has gone from 6 to 13. It is another powerful album although to my ears not quite as good as the debut. But it does include "Lady In Black" which went on to sell millions of copies as a hit single. The title song was over sixteen minutes long and even included an orchestra! The American album cover is somewhat more stark and eye-catching than the British tank which had to be changed as it was too violent for the US!! It is interesting to read the comments by Ken about the first song on the album, its' importance etc. The words are the same on both UK and US releases but the song wasn't as 'Bird Of Prey' opened the UK version, and that was replaced by "Simon The Bullet Freak" in America which was actually on Side Two.
