U.K. (album)

Allan’s appearance on “U.K.” probably exposed him to a larger audience than any of his previous recordings, as U.K. was an all-star band, and the type of progressive rock U.K. played had a relatively large audience. “In The Dead Of Night” and “Thirty Years” feature jaw-dropping solos. “Nevermore” features a beautful acoustic intro and Allan trading licks with Eddie Jobson. “Mental Medication” is a relatively early feature of Allan’s chordal work, rarely heard on record before. There are some wonderful multitracked guitar at the end. Allan received co-composer credit on the latter two.
