This is truly a great album. I bought this album a year ago and have hardly gone a week since without a play. The quality is that good. I am a lover of many different types of music, particularly anything connected with the 60s beat boom and r'n'b, and although recorded over 20 years later this contains songs that the Beatles or the Who would have been proud of. The whole feel of the disc is timeless, and the tunes some of the strongest I've ever heard, and despite Lee Mavers complaints about the final production sound being "crap",there is an authentic mod beat resonating through the entire proceedings. "There she goes"(Which actually is quite different from the rest of the set in style) is now a radio standard with its soaring melody and classic Byrds-like jangly guitar.Paul weller recently named it as his fave song of the past 15 years in Q magazine.
Other great tracks like "I cant sleep", "Feelin'", Way out, and the brilliant,"Timeless melody" demonstrate the La's ability to perform and in particular Lee Mavers outstanding songwriting skills.
If this was just the start for the La's then think where they could have finished, as probably global superstars, but this is their only complete album, and as it is, is a wonderful legacy to one of the finest bands ever
