Life after Argent
D. Hartley | Seattle, WA USA | 01/18/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Most music fans remember Russ Ballard (if they recognize the name at all!) as guitarist/vocalist for 1970's British prog-rockers Argent. Although the band's "leader" was ex-Zombies keyboardist Rod Argent, Russ Ballard was thier secret weapon,penning some of the better Argent tunes. "At The Third Stroke" is one of his better solo efforts, featuring his always excellent songwriting, vocal and guitar playing skills. Standout tracks include "Helpless" and "Dancer". If you enjoy mid 70's jazz-rock-pop hybrid (think McDonald-era Doobies or Bob Welch-era Fleetwood Mac), you'll enjoy this one!"
