21 of 21 people found the following review helpful By Vince on 23 Oct. 2008
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Signed by Atlantic records (none other than Zeppelins label!) in 1974 after being strongly recommended and then produced by 'whispering Bob Harris'from Old grey Whistle Test fame and Yes keyboard legend Rick Wakeman, this band fits into the progressive rock circle very nicely indeed even though it has its country music influences.
The album fuses country rock (America maybe?) with everything grandiose about prog rock music of the era, creating an essentially new and different sound to what was around then. Pedal steel guitar, Violin, Grand Piano plus the usual asssortment, brilliant vocals and original songwriting makes this by far one of the best 'forgotten albums' of all time. I have waited so long for this album to arrive on CD , my prayers answered at last and how grateful I am, listen to the violin 'riff' on 'The Martyr', the stunning ballad 'Sunday Walking Lady' and the absolute epic 'To The Urban Man' a fourteen minute classic prog track (to me anyhow) .This CD pressing is so long overdue, just glad I didn't expire before I had chance to gaze upon the cover and listen to its beautiful melodies once more. An atmospheric album of quality music with a difference., elegant, refined and very pleasant to the ears,

With the recent sad death of founder member Paul Garrett, the opening track on this superb prog-rock album must be dedicated to his memory.
For me, "Martyr" is the stand-out track on a superb album. It recalls the band "It's a Beautiful Day" at their peek, with brilliant lead violin, I can say no more.
More than straight prog-rock, the influences on this album are many and varied, you need to have it in your collection today. Just superb music.

Wally

I first saw Wally around 1972 in a pub in Leeds & could`nt believe what i was hearing. My friends & i spent the next few years following Wally all over Yorkshire. They went on to play major venues & supported Leo Sayer at St George`s Hall, Bradford. Wally played a wonderful set to a packed audience, poor Leo ended up playing to about 300 people in the 2nd half of the show !!
This album was released in 1974 that included the classic "The Martyr" & the 14 minute epic "To the urban Man" along with more mellow country rock songs "I just wanna be acowboy" & "Sunday walking lady"
The sound of the violin, mellotron, steel guitar, piano & guitars & the wonderful voice of Roy Webber all create a magical sound that only Wally could produce.
This album was produced by Rick Wakeman & Bob Harris
My New Years wish is for their 2nd album "Valley Gardens" to be released in the near future.
WALLY - WALLY - WALLY - WALLY - WALLY !!

I first saw Wally around 1972/73 in the pubs around the Leeds/Harrogate area where the band originated from.They progressed to larger venues such as their Christmas gig at Harrogate & supporting Leo Sayer at Bradford`s St George`s Hall where they played a majestic set to a packed audience.Leo came on stage after the interval & performed in front of about 300 people,the peril`s of having the best local band at that time as your support act. In 1974 Wally released the first of two albums featuring the classic "The Martyr",the epic "To the urban man" & the wonderful country feel songs "Sunday walking lady" & "I just wanna be a cowboy",the latter being released as a single that would have been more appropiate to the American market as oppose to the British charts. This album was produced by Rick Wakeman & Bob Harris
I have waited over 25 years for the above CD,let`s hope their 2nd album "Valley Gardens" is released in the near future!!

The first albumn from 70's country/prog rock band from Harrogate. Released on CD for the first time ( other than a limited run in Japan years ago ) . Some great tracks which stand the test of time very well. Band was heavily influenced by an eclectic mix of American greats including Garcia and Crosby ( later B Side of single Nez Percee makes clear ) . Memorable tracks written in the main by Roy Webber ( guitar and vocals who is still making music ) . Fine pedal steel by Paul Middleton.
An unknown classic - hopefully the follow up Valley Gardens will be released soon

Format: Audio CD
I first fell in love with this band when I picked up a copy of their even better second and final album Valley Gardens on vinyl in a junk shop in the late 70s for a pound, because I was attracted to the cover (similar to this one, except it's black) and its evocative title. A friend advised me I was in for a treat, because they had been passionately discovered by our beloved "whispering" Bob Harris, and co-arranged by Rick Wakeman, because they had toured with Yes, and managed to get signed to their label Atlantic. I certainly wasn't disappointed - especially seductive and satisfying were its complex opening 10 minute title track, and its immensely satisfying 19 minute closing track - The Reason Why. I was so addicted to the album, I pretty much wore it into the ground!

It wasn't 'till years later I managed to obtain a vinyl copy of this, their first album, and was absolutely delighted to find it was very nearly as great, and follows a very similar pattern - namely a complex and killer opening track The Martyr, followed by a couple of nice American-influenced songs - one short and one longer, and both brimming with resigned emotion - to close the first side. The second half opens with another American-influenced song Sunday Walking Lady, which is short and sweet, before delving headlong into its brilliantly complex and slightly unsettling 13 minute centrepiece To The Urban Man, before emerging on a (once again) resigned but nicely conclusive Your Own Way.

I really thought these albums must be good enough to one day re-appear on CD but, until now, were only briefly available at great expense as Japanese imports in the early 90s (far too expensive for ME at the time, which is why I passed on them, and have kicked myself ever since!).
