GUN - Gun (1969)

Those of you familiar with bands such as the
Three Man Army and Baker-Gurvitz Army will probably know Gun, a british heavy rock trio formed by the Curtis Brothers (Adrian & Paul) and Lou Farrell in 1969. Their first album cracked out "Race With The Devil", a classic rock song later covered by many artists (Girlschool's version is definitely my favourite). A second album (Gunsight) followed and then the group disbanded.

Gun's music is heavy rock with attitude and the songs are original and quite interesting as they can not be easily pigeonholed under the mainstream rock category.

I ripped the album from the original vinyl and then I edited it in Cool Edit pro to enhance sound quality (mainly to remove clicks & pops and boost the bass). If you are not happy with the mastering I can always post the unmastered vinyl rip.

    Thanks for 'Gun' - 'Race With The Devil' was a classic case of one-hit-wonders. Is any of their other stuff any good? Can't wait.
