Gravy Train is an album by jazz saxophonist Lou Donaldson recorded for the Blue Note label in 1961 and performed by Donaldson with Herman Foster, Ben Tucker, Dave Bailey, and Alec Dorsey. The album was awarded 3½ stars in an Allmusic review by Steve Huey who states "Gravy Train is a fine, if not quite exceptional record from Lou Donaldson's initial soul-jazz phase of the early '60s… Donaldson's playing is pleasant, and the rest of the supporting group maintains a steady groove throughout".

Although Gravy Train's career was all too brief, they still managed to switch labels midway through, resulting in two albums for Vertigo and two for Dawn Records. Strength of a dream is taken from their time with Dawn, thus consisting of the albums Second birth and Staircase to the day in their entirety, plus a number of non album A and B sides. As a pleasing bonus, we also get six tracks recorded for the band's unreleased 5th album…

Unbeknown to the band at the time, Gravy Train's fourth album, Staircase to the day, would be their last. Recording of a fifth album was started, the fruits of which can be heard on the Strength of a dream anthology, but the it was never completed…

The misleading title of Gravy Train's third album refers to their migration to a new record label, and the consequent renewal of inspiration…

Among the lesser-feted jewels released by the Vertigo label during its swirly-logo purple patch, Gravy Train's restful hybrid of jazz-tinged virtuosity, folky pastorals, and heartfelt vocalizing peaks on this, their second album, and that despite A Ballad of a Peaceful Man doing little more than treading water when compared to the experimental peaks of its predecessor…

Third album, dating from 1973, from this UK heavy prog band. Inevitable Jethro Tull comparisons, due to the inclusion of flute, shouldn't detract from the fact that this is a fine example of 70s British rock. Comes with a bonus track "Goodtime Girl".

Gravy Train were never considered as a 'top shelf' prog act, but they have given us some memorable moments. With 'Staircase To The Day' we have a stunning Roger Dean gatefold sleeve to enhance the listening experience, which may contain some vocal short-comings (Norman has a rather abrasive quality to his voice, and he is often very passionate in his delivery, this makes his vox quite an acquired taste). "Staircase…" offers nice mood swing throughout and ranges from Hendrix-like guitar driven moments to pastel/keyboard laden parts.

Jethro Tull and Comus had a baby, and they named it Gravy Train. That's not strictly accurate, of course, but as the band's eponymous debut opens with the fluid changes of "The New One," it's not too far of a reach, either. Richly harmonic, daringly jam-laden, and peppered with guitar roars that simply defy comparison, Gravy Train is the sound of the British underground at its most joyously liberated peak - a time when a bunch of apparent freaks could simply go into a major recording studio and let rip. Except Gravy Train's concept of "letting rip" has more in common with a symphony orchestra than the Edgar Broughton Band…

Adorned in a Roger Dean gatefold sleeve, this eight-song collection is expanded with four single sides, but the fourth album by guitarist/ vocalist Norman Barrett and his band of merry prog men stands proud in any case. While Gravy Train never moved to the premier league with the likes of ELP and Yes, their BJH-styled approach is understated but equally as gripping. Hence, the psych-tinged chorale of opener Starlight Starbright is redolent of Yes, while Bring My Life On Back To Me is akin to BJH’s The Great 1974 Mining Disaster, which can’t be bad. Never Wanted You is a psych-leaning number with harmonica wails, while Staircase To The Day has pastoral flute and mellotron ? la Camel. The knowingly-titled Going For A Quick One actually adopts period glam tones rather than Yes, but the clavinet and piano of Evening Of My Life impresses, and the wahrich Busted In Schenectady closes proceedings in Grobschnittian fashion.
