THREE MAN ARMY "A Third Of A Lifetime" - 1971

Some people under-estimate this band, saying it's forgettable. I don't think so : they have some great tunes and a heavy load of great guitar works.

After the demise of GUN, the Gurvitz brothers (credited as Curtis on the US version) team up with ex-SPOOKY TOOTH drummer to give birth to THREE MAN ARMY. Actually, a great number of drummers are featured on this first album (Buddy Miles among others). Tony Newman from MAY BLITZ will join the band for their second release.

Pop tunes in a Progressive Hard Rock disguise would suit the band's sound well.
Again, great guitar work all the way, and some really tasty cuts.

"What's My Name" opens side 2 and I have to admit I didn't know which song to pick for the player. I think this one should make you wanna buy it.
The US version has the die-cut cover (see the bullet holes?) and is slightly cheaper than the UK one (originally released in the UK on Pegasus).
