This second effort from the Gurvitz brothers shines. The opening track, Head In The Clouds, stuck me at the time to be one of the most effective uses of stereo recording - try it with headphones. Angeline was the song I listened to the most - a Stairway To Heaven type construction with a ripping break.
Before Gun, there was the Knack & Londoners, more pop & mod than power and gives you some insight into the Gurvitz boys and things to come. Look for their transitional track, Lights On The Wall, that stands up there with period classics like 14 Hour Technicolor Dream etc.
Paul Gurvitz subsequently did a couple of solo LPs out but his very best, Gurvitz-Parrish remains unreleased, a great collaboration with guitarist Brian Parrish (Badger). Adrian Gurvitz, post Baker Gurvitz Army headed for LA, wrote songs for REO and Whitney Huston and put out a series of solid solo efforts, the most balanced of which remains Classic - a mix of ballads and a couple of almost Gunlike rockers with riffs that take you back to the power trio days.
