By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the third album from the underrated Keef Hartley Band. There had been some line-up changes since the previous year's `The Battle of North West Six', which led to a slight change in the nature of the music. There is a slightly greater emphasis on the experimental/jazz feel, and a slight move away form the purer blues sound.

This is a classic record full of classy tunes. The basic combo (vocals/guitars/drums and bass) is augmented by a great horn section, which allows for more layers to the music, and gives more scope for a bit of experimentation and stretching out. The sound is very distinctively British blues, the natural progression from the sort of thing John Mayall was doing, but not quite full blown `prog rock'. The arrangements show a good variation from the urgent to the languorous. The stand out track has to be the title track - a good, solid workout for all concerned with a great rhythm and a catchy lyric.

This is another excellent release from Esoteric. The sound has been nicely remastered and restored, and sounds sharp and clean on my stereo. There is a booklet with some interesting notes from Hartley about the recording of this album. There are also a few photographs. Unlike other releases there are no extras in the form of contemporary singles, mainly because there weren't any, so this really is not a problem! All in all a great release. I've had a few discs from Esoteric now, and am consistently impressed with the high standards of their releases.

All in all a 5 star release of 5 star music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keef Hartley mellowest album 19 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Great to hear this classic album re-mastered sympathetically. Sometimes the stereo separation is a bit extreme, but the clarity over the originals is very welcome for those who only have the old scratchy worn out vinyl. Very tight brass arrangements throughout - moving away from the rawer blues of Halfbreed and NW6, and showcasing Miller Anderson on vocals. Stretches to omly about 40 minutes overall, but worth buying just for the title track. and "You Can't Take it With You" that follows.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keef Hartley Band 23 Nov 2010
By Bill
Format:Audio CD
the 1970's was an explosively creative time for rock and jazz. Keef Hartley's crew were talented and their music was carefully crafted. This album is for me the best of the best, seamlessly visiting rock, jazz and big band. Miller Anderson's writing is almost architectural in in its precision; with inspired solos by David Caswell, Lyle Jenkins and Miller Andersen throughout bound by Hartley's tight rythyms, this album is just about as good as it gets. As fresh today as the day I first heard it back in 1970- just buy it.
