4.0 out of 5 stars 2 Great Albums Long Forgotten! 20 Aug 2008
I purchased this CD because I am a big fan of Crawler and guitarist Geoff Whitehorn and these are the 2 IF albums on which he appeared. To this day, I have not heard any other IF material. I had read that they were a great bluesy jazz rock group in the vein of the latter day John Mayall and the Keef Hartley Band. That's true and I would add that they bring a little Chicago Transit Authority or Santana to the mix too.

I have read that most IF fans don't rate these albums too highly but I think they contain some of the most entertaining music to come out of the Seventies. Whitehorn's funky guitar and Dick Morrissey's bluesy sax make for some truly exciting material. I would rate 'Not Just Another Bunch of Pretty Faces' as the better of the two and is one of those complete albums where you don't find yourself skipping a track. 'Tea Break Over...' is patchier and the material is not as memorable.

Overall, a great listen and worth the often hefty price tag, if you can find the CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to the theatre 22 July 2013

The lyrics are dated and If seem to be exploring different genres - it could be Steely Dan in places. That said, this is very good stuff. Anyone who was a prog rock fan in their youth and likes a bit of jazz in their boots will enjoy this. It took me back to a gig in the 1970's where I briefly got totally lost in the music and oblivious to my surroundings - a very rare occurrence. It can still work that magic, especially listening through headphones - don't waste this as background music - immerse yourself in it and enjoy the shapes and patterns that If weave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! Just the way I remembered it. 10 April 2013
Verified Purchase
I still have both of these recordings on ALBUMS. I wanted to put them on a cd but there were a few very light pops and some noise. So, when I found out about these reissues on cd....Two on one cd, no less. I had to jump on it. Great sound and a really nice package. Excellent memories. I actually played in a very short lived project with the keyboard player (Gabriel Magno) back in the mid 70's, so this has extra special meaning to me. Thanks guys! This is highly recommended!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Sound quality poor 11 April 2013
By Jeff Carr - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I gave this product only 2 stars because of the quality of the recording - not the content. I had the "Tea break over.." album years ago and this recording is a poor quality reproduction of the original - it is almost as if the seller made a cd from a poor quality recording and in the process of "clleaning it up" dulled the clarity and impact of the original. Or the seller made it at home from an mp3 recording. If it was available from somewhere else I would recommend getting it there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Get Caught Saying What "IF" 16 Oct 2012
By Glenn Crooks - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was working a shift at WUOG, UGA, in 1977 and a friend with me in the studio pulled out the album, "Tea Break Over." She said I would like it because it combined my interests in blues, rock and jazz. I ended up playing cuts off this album every time I had a shift and the GM of the station called me in amazement and glee after one of the tracks paid tribute to Charlie Parker. I still have both albums but to have a clean CD has been something to cherish as I realized I had not listened to them in about 25 years. Not sure what they did after my introduction in '77 or where they might be now but to have this disc is a treasure for me.
