Gas Mask – Their First Album (1970/2019) Tonsil Records

Signed to the small New York Tonsil label, the band’s 1970 debut “Their First Album” teamed them with producer Teo Macero. Musically the comparison with BS&T simply couldn’t be missed. Backed by a BS&T-styled “Jazz-Rock-Fusion” merged the stylings of rock, pop and R&B/soul and horn section (Richard Grando, David Gross and Enrico Raja), singer Bobby Osborne’s growl came off as little more than a David Clayton-Thomas wannabe. With Olivia responsible for the majority of the material (Gross contributing two selections), tracks such as ‘If You Just Think of Me’, ‘Light the Road’ and ‘Just Like That’ weren’t bad (particularly if you liked early BS&T).
