All I can say is this: as a guitarist, Ollie Halsall is definitely amongst the top two guitarists ever (we owe everthing to Hendrix really); as a singer, well, Mike Patto... that's all you have to say. As a drummer and bassist - well, they hold the groove down...As a prog rock fan, this is one of the best CD's of the '70's, easily, if not longer. What beats them? Red by King Crimson - and that's it. As a Death Metal musician I shouldn't even be doing a review of Patto - but that's how great they were. I'm a huge Robert Fripp and Mick Ronson fan, but still this is ultimately some of the best, most fluid, perfect guitar I've heard, ever. If you want to hear great guitar, chordal and SOLOS (my god, the solos!!!!), vocals, and be blown away by how a great band should be (and still so sadly underrated too), then Patto is where to start - and this CD is the best example of why Patto would have been HUGE if myspace had been around in 1971. Absolute classic. Such a shame no feck bought it at the time.

The significance of this album is best summarised in the words of drummer John Halsey: "Ollie (Halsall) may not have been the world's best guitarist, but he was certainly among the top two". Simply essential.

Patto's albums could never really capture the magic of their live shows, but this album is by far the best of the bunch. Ollie Halsall was probably one of, if not, the greatest guitarist of all time. You can hear this on the album but he really needed to be seen to be believed. At the time he was the guitarist's guitarist! The songs are not brilliant but his guitar playing takes them into another dimension. Well worth a listen to if you have never heard them before.

If you were young and around at the turn of the 70's, then this is a band that might've slipped through the net for you, as they had a pretty low profile and who's record companies failed to really expose to the masses. But this is what made them special to the minority, and made their gigs a minor event.
If you like your rock with flair, humour, charisma, jazzy, funky, hard hitting, left of centre, do yourself a favour and invest in 'Patto', 'Hold Your Fire' and 'Roll 'em Smoke 'em And Put Another Line Out'.
Or if you're young and on the 70's trail, give 'em a listen, you won't be disappointed.
