David Ackles: Subway To The Country (Elektra stereo EKS 74060; 39s 11d)

Richard Green, New Musical Express, 17 January 1970

DAVID ACKLES seems to have a preoccupation with gloom, doom and disaster when writing songs, but it usually turns out that numbers written in that vein are better than his lighter works. On this album there are four outstanding tracks and each one is in some way sad.
