Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Volume 36, Number 16. 12th July 1973



Quite satisfying this. Wild Turkey feature the quite stodgy ex-Jethro Tull bassist, Glenn Cornick, loads of nice 'n neat slide and lead guitar, throaty vocals from Gary PickfordHopkins and nine competent — mostly rocking — tracks.

Sadly, it'll get hopelessly lost in the mass of albums from break away musicians and today's heavy-sell shit.

Yes, it's damnably bad these days. Why, only the other day. A Record Shop Man gave me a free black-and-white pop poster so I felt almost obliged to spend money in His shop.

I'm not wasting column inches on this little number then. If you want a few surprises from a tired pop-scene, forget "Houses of the Holy", "Birds of Fire" and the latest from your greatest for a few weeks. Break out and buy something like Wild Turkey.

They're not half-bad and they run rings! around their British friends. Wishbone Ash ('course that was one of last year's classic heavy-sells so we shan't blame you for that).
