Gravy Train were a progressive rock group from Lancashire, formed in 1969. The band recorded four studio albums. The first two were released on the Vertigo label and the latter two by Dawn Records.
The band was dissolved in 1975. Little is known about the subsequent lives of the members, except for Barratt and Williams. Barratt appeared in Mandalaband for their second and final album in 1978, then went on to form The Barratt Band, which recorded two albums in the early 1980s. Les Williams has been working at Ocean Entertainments, an agency.
"I never got to see Gravy train but I heard a lot about them. The only person in the band that I knew was Les Williams from his time in The Incas when he was the guitarist - and he was a reet good un too!"
