|very good album which has some good moments on it although i think robin mc auley is a much better singer than bernie so "there for none to see" and "samuray" are a lot better.samuray its their best album,what a classic phew!!.

|Bernie Shaw is today a great vocalist with Uriah Heep, much better than Robin Mc Auley, but at that time (1980)he wasn't so impressive as poor man's Steve Perry. The first Grand Prix album is excellent because of Phil Lanzon's writing abilities.

|Great UK pomp rock band ,second only to Magnum in that respect.The one that really did it for me was the follow-up "There For None To See".I think it was even better than Samurai".

|Excellent debut release, and probably my fave of the three (although the others are recommended aswell). Great songs throughout with 'Which Way Did The Wind Blow', 'Westwind' and 'Feel Like I Do' being the standouts for me.

|I agree with Jez above, I love this CD and although the others are the ones that get all the credit this has some kind of special feel about it. Waiting for the Night starts the album off with a great bouncy feel...the bass sounds great. Which Way Does the Wind Blow is a classic song. You must really get all three all are worth a place in your collection.

|This is pure pomp, as good as it gets (along with Magnum),IMO. For some reason the best offerings from these two bands remind me in a subtle way of having Yes influences, although I really can't explain why. Vocal harmonies? 90125? Maybe it's just the mood they put me in, I don't know. Grand Prix sure was a great band though, unashamedly theatric.

|This album sounds well. Somebody says it's a pre-Heep/Shaw album. I'm not agree but it's my opinion. Originally named only Grand Prix i think it was released in 1980 and not in 1981, but i'm not sure.

|Good debut album by Grand Prix that had in its first line up the very talented vocalist Bernie Shaw(nowadays and since a long long time ago with Uriah Heep)...Pomp Rock ala old school is what they delivered on this album...my faves are "Thinking Of You"(nice & catchy),"Which Way Did The Wind Blow"(nice),"Westwind","Next To You","You Know It Can Be"(reminded me of the band Triumph in here) & "The Very Last Time(Dreamer)"(nice)....80/100
