It's a nice disc. Kind of a looser version of Chicago. Less pretty vocals, but nice and lots of rock guitar licks and horns for a jazz/rock/blues fusion feel. This release is Keef Hartleys most Rock and Roll sounding as compared to the bluesey previous material. I feel that every song, including the bonus tracks is a keeper. Is it comparable to Magical Mystery Tour, No but its a fine peice of 1970 music that I'm pleased to own. Of all the Hartleys I own I must say this is overall the best.(Mark E. Hyken)
