THE 1970s were a decade when anything was permissible. If you wanted your music to sound big, bold and brazen you were positively encouraged to make as much bluster as humanly possible. Step forward Lone Star, a Welsh six piece trumpeted by those in the know as the next big thing, bigger in fact than Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Queen. CBS certainly thought so when they signed them to a contract before they had even played a solitary live show.
Issued in 1975, Lone Star's debut album took, what is now termed, pomp rock by the scruff of the neck and delivered a record that knocked the competition sideways. Produced by famously flamboyant studio wizard Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, Foreigner, Journey) it displayed a sound that utilised everything and the kitchen sink - bombastic and grandiose, no stone was left unturned to achieve maximum sonic effect. Indeed, it was a record that found media cognoscenti such as Alan Freeman, Geoff Barton, Nicky Horne and John Peel falling over themselves to recommend it.
Everything about this record is so right, so impressive and so gigantically over the top that nothing has come close to its grandeur since. Featuring future UFO guitarist Paul Chapman and containing such highfalutin tracks as 'Flying In The Reel', 'Spaceships', 'A Million Stars' and a monster interpretation of the Beatles 'She Said, She Said', the album scores a suitably impressive eleven on a ten scale.
