Format: Audio CD
Adrian Gurvitz was an early practitioner of the "machine gun guitar", setting the standard for speed metal with Race With The Devil. A major hit throughout Europe. He tried again with Yellow Cab Man and Drives You Mad - both good but not great. What sets this first Gun Lp apart was the integration of an orchestra into the mix. Flight of the Bumblebee is re-imagined as Saga.... featuring an unexpected guitar solo and the imaginative, Rat Race, with a searing guitar workout sandwiched in between a Kink's influenced social commentary on the working man. Standout track is Sunshine which might as well be a Cream outtake from Wheels on Fire. I have always loved this LP and the Repertoire reissue is definitive.

I gave Adrian, Paul and Louis 5 stars for their ambitious work, a lot of heart and eneregy in creating this CD. I also would like to give the stars to the sound engineers that remastered the original LP. Excellent job! I bought this album in 1970 back home in Poland and listened to it more than thousand times. CD has just arrived a few hours ago and ... I feel thirty years younger today.

I suppose at this point in the history of Rock 'n Roll the record companies were clamoring to sign power trios to ride the coat tails of Cream and Hendrix. Well.....some A&R guy screwed up here.

Most any artist will find fans but, with all due respect, I found these guys to be pretty awful. First is Adrian Gurvitz. . I just don't think he's that good. First off, I found the sound of his guitar to be annoying. His solos sound as though he's playing them on his neck pick-up which grated on my nerves. The songs themselves were unremarkable. The singing likewise. And too many of the songs didn't end. They just faded out. You can only get away with that so many times.Then there were some songs that were barely songs at all. They were almost just exercises in rhythm dressed up with horns, and sometimes, strings. I cannot imagine what those songs were supposed to sound like live. The drums and bass are good enough I suppose, but you need to be better good enough in a three piece outfit. Sometimes I given artist/project needs a few listens to find its way. I tried a second listen but couldn't make it all the way through. It hurt too much.

I've been buying music since the Beatles first hit and now I'm trying to go back and fill in the blanks with artists I might have missed. Gun has come up now and again so I thought they might be worth pursuing. Boy was I wrong.

These guys know how to dish out and write very catchy clever songs. Best I can describe it is heavier Beatles Revolver era meets Uriah Heeps Easy Living. Some good orchestration and horns on some tracks. I was very pleased with this CD from start to finish. Highlights: Race w/the Devil, Yellow Cab Man, Rupert's Travels,
Take Off and the bonus track Drives You Mad. The CD also has 4 bonus tracks the afformentioned Drives You Mad and the single versions of Race With The Devil, Sunshine and Rupert's Travels. Buy it, it rocks.
