Virginia Hard Rock Trio

"This hard rock album from 1971 by a Virginia trio has one great standout track: the acoustic guitar driven "Golden Sails", performed entirely by Jim Gaylon and sounding quite similar to Jethro Tull. This song alone is worth the price of admission! Other standouts include the organ-powered, heavy rock of "Let It Burn" (complete with bluesy vocals and great flute and organ solos) and the long, lumbering title track "Harbour". There aren't many weak moments musically. Fans of heavy rock with booming bass, drums, and organ will find a lot of meat on this one. Lovers of early Jethro Tull and heavy organ bands (like Deep Purple) could very well get into this. Includes two unreleased bonus tracks, with "One More Drink" (clocking in at 39 seconds) being another acoustic ballad reminiscent of Ian Anderson. Informative liner notes. Another hard rock rarity available at last."

"Another underrated band from the 70s (1968-1974 some says, but I knew it on vinyl only), an American product strongly influenced by its UK peers. The group is a strange and pleasant hybrid of Deep Purple and Jethro Tull. The original album was released in 1971 and this CD is highly recommended for any collector of classic hard-rock. A real rarity, worth every penny - didn't expect to see it on CD!"
