Stray really should of made it big time. They had a great singer Steve Gadd in a Paul Rogers role and Del Bronham was a great songwriter and guitarist with a penchant for great heavy riffs often played very fast, put that with a cooking rhythm section and you had a world dominating four piece. So what happened? It wasn't for hard work. I saw them play an absolute blinder twice supporting Rush and Kiss in London gaining an encore both times. The reason (i think) is that they were signed to transatlantic records which was a small label specialising in folk. If they had been with, say CBS they would of been up there with Zep or Sabbath. This is a classic first album second only to 'saturday morning pictures' a veritable goldmine of classic songs 'all in your mind''time machine' and there two greatest tracks 'move on' which its jazzy break and the closer 'in reverse/some say' eight minutes of wah-wah driven riffage. It is well produced and is a nice package and worth checking out as an example of early seventies U.K bands who through no fault of their own (and not for the want of trying) missed the proverbial boat!

I have trouble making it through the first Stray album. Whenever I put it on, I usually fall asleep! Not saying the album is bad, but that it's a classic hard rock/psychedelic album that has a certain almost "trancelike" sound even on the heavier tracks. There are some great songs here, including "All in Your Mind" (later covered by Iron Maiden), where the mellow psychedelic moments give way to full-blown rock guitar riffery. Del Bromham's fuzzed-out guitar tone on this track adds to the excitement as the song morphs from one brilliant section to another. The more pop-prog moments include "Around the World in Eighty Days," which could pass for a Yes song were Jon Anderson singing it.

"Taking all the Good Things" ventures into blues-rock territory a la Free (a worthy comparison at times) before exploding into a frenzy of hard rock guitar and drum chaos. "Time Machine" is another noteworthy track which, like many of Stray's songs, takes the listener along for a musical and lyrical journey, this time to witness the downfall of ancient Rome. "Only What You Can Make It" is another straight-on heavy blues rocker featuring Bromham's blistering lead work followed by a harmonica outro. The intro riff to "Yesterday's Promises" sounds amazingly like Free's "Mr. Big," but the song soon ventures into softer territory with an introspective lyric highlighting the vocal ability of Steve Gadd. With it's conga drum intro, "Move On" might've taken a hint from Santana but the song quickly reveals itself to be another hard rocker with a mid section which might bring to mind Black Sabbath, courtesy of Gary Giles' punctual bass lines.

Nah, stick with me Stray. This is an example of a great forgotten classic. It slipped through the cracks obviously since hardly anyone has even heard of the band but believe me when I say THAT my friends is a major crime. If you value and appreciate good rock music, trust me, the moment you play this album you'll want to hear the entire thing! You won't want to take it out of your CD player for a long time!

"All In Your Mind" begins this hard rock album on a high note. Energetic, high strung guitar riffs, raw guitar tone, uplifting vocals, chugging speedy pace... memorable stuff! Over the course of 9 minutes the song goes through many different guitar riffs all for the purpose of rocking out and continuing a frantic pace. "Taking All the Good Things" has an early Golden Earring vibe with the drums and the guitar playing in the beginning before shifting into a heavy riff-driven blues song. The lead singer reminds me of the guy from Captain Beyond or perhaps to name a really rare band, Fuzzy Duck.

I figured a song with a title like "Around the World in 80 Days" would be a very fast-paced heavy rocker but believe it or not, no! This is actually more like a psychedelic tune you can picture a band like Khan doing (the band that released the criminally underrated Space Shanty album). The dreaminess of the piano work leading into a heavy Wild West-like guitar riff is a pretty fascination transition before the chorus kicks in. "Together we will fly!" *pounding bass work*. GREAT song! "Time Machine" also contains a psychedelic feel much like the previous song but this time in between the verse melody lies a VERY sludgy Black Sabbath-resembling guitar riff. Welcome to the sludge factory!

Rarely, bonus tracks are more than just short or unreleased versions. This CD has bonus tracks worth taking up space since I have not seen them on any other release. This is a must-have for Stray and any other 70s prog-rock fans.

The packaging and booklet are nicely done. It is a great addition to my collection.
