Stray - Hearts Of Fire (1975)

The eight album from this British band.

The band was a quartet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars and vocals.

This is the final relevant album from this band and most says farewell to the band with  this album. And so do I.

The band had been mismanaged and had been unlucky throughout their career. That is the story the band and their friends likes to tell us.

Yes, that is true. But most of all, the band failed in USA and world wide because when it came to the crunch, the band failed to deliver the goods.

That means the band never really delivered a good to great album. Their albums was solid but they did not sparkle and they did not give the general public that many excuses to fork out money, hard earned money, to purchase them.

On this album, the band has still not given up cracking USA. 

We therefore get a mid-atlantic album which crashes down somewhere south of Iceland.

The music is hard rocking and gives us three quarters of an hour full of hard rock with some strong southern rock influences.

This is a decent, solid album. It is not a great album and it buried the band again and lost them the chance to crack USA. 

On it's own.... it is a cracking decent hard rock album well worth checking out.
