GRAVY TRAIN Strength Of A Dream - The Gravy Train Anthology (2CD) Castle CMDD1402 (2006)

Gravy Train

Gravy Train were a British prog band who released 4 albums in the early 70s. Their first two appeared on Vertigo, while the second two (1973 / 1974 respectively) appeared on Dawn, and itís those 2 final albums that appear here in their entirety, with singles and alternate versions making up the extra tracks.

Singer Norman Barrett had a great range, and power too, giving a melodic Uriah Heep sound to the music. Thereís harder tracks too that nod and Hendrix and Deep Purple, while thereís a touch of Jethro Tull (the flutes help there).

Both albums are strong, often overlooked and underrated. Not completely consistent but good and worth checking out. Will definitely please fans, and itís well annotated and well packaged.
