The Gladiators: Naturality (Virgin/Front Line), Presenting The Gladiators (Studio One)

Vivien Goldman, Melody Maker, 3 March 1979

NOT A great week for the Gladiators, all round. First of all, the lead singer, Albert Griffiths, is shattered to learn over the phone that a Jamaican import album of their old Studio One hits is (a) released; and (b) selling very nicely. Then they released the weakest, by far, of their three Front Line albums. Tough timing.
