Five star review * * * * *
Touring regularly around the United Kingdom since the 1960s, Graham Robins should be more well-known especially as he wrote all of the fantastic twelve songs on this album. In fact, royal recognition should be the minimum that he receives for this stonking effort.There are many fine examples to choose from but if push comes to shove, it would have to be “The Gangster’s Of Rock N Roll” that is the best. With one of the fastest rhythms around, it lifts the spirits especially when the background instrumental work is taken into consideration with lashings of pedal steel and acoustic guitar. In fact, it is this song alone which should see rapturous applause heading in Graham’s direction due to how good it is. With his extensive experience in music, long may Graham Robins continue.
