----------
 
Sanity & Gravity wasn't a typical 'solo' drum album (as a means of demonstrating his prodigious technique): Gavin created an expressive and emotional album that is strong on both groove and melody. 
 
In his own words, “Faced with the prospect of making a 'solo' drum album I decided I would take a more experimental approach to playing my instrument, rather than make a record of fast flashy solos and fills to try and show off my technique. I felt there was a way to express emotion from the drums played with the attitude of "blowing" on a saxophone or "twiddling" around on a piano.”
 
The original album has gone on to gain legendary status in the 25 years following its original conception with the CD fetching high sums on the resale market.
