Very good work from Mr Burland, in fine voice interpreting his favourite RT songs, with RT's guitar in there at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Irish trio, 25 Dec 2013
Info taken from a cabaret news website, dated 2001-2004. The album was launched in 2002. The group's own website link on that page doesn't work so they may've broken up. Haven't heard the album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prog-blues, 22 Feb 2013
Excellent & impressive guitar from Dave 'Clem' Clempson, who is under-rated and rather forgotten in the pantheon of guitar heroes - his work with Colosseum and Humble Pie is great too, and he's still performing today.
Unfortunately there's a typical early 70s drum solo on one track which is too long and rather dull (& to my mind, not very proficient), which knocks off one star, but if you're a fan of early British prog, and/or you remember it's little b/w picture on the Harvest Records inner sleeves, and you always wondered about it, it's worth having.
