5.0 out of 5 stars First and best!, 2 Jan 2013
The first album from the Glasgow band and in my view the best!The guitarist,Hugh Nicholson was in the band Marmalade for a couple of years before forming Blue with Ian MacMillan and drummer Timmy Donald has worked with Richard Thompson and John Cale!
The album is a mixture of great ballads and some fine rockers,"Little Jody",which was a single and "Sitting on a fence",plus the happy/loopy "Skye banana boat song"
My favourite track is "I wish I could fly" with a beautiful guitar solo from Nicholson
A fine band!

5.0 out of 5 stars A gem!, 18 Dec 2012
Any reviews I have read on this album are very negative which I find surprising,I think it's superb from start to finish,OK,it's nothing like the Buffalo Springfield,to me it's a jazz-fusion album.The first track with Ricky James Matthews on vocals sounds similar to Traffic's jazzy period,Shoot out at the fantasy factory and Low spark of the high heeled boys!
The whole album has a nice groove to it.Palmer,like Neil Young,was making music his way much to the annoyance of his record company!
Other musicians who played on this album -
Ed Roth-Organ,Danny Ray-Congas and four members of Kaleidoscope!
R.I.P. Bruce.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blistering, 14 Nov 2006
This album has been worth the wait.You'll never hear better versions of "Down by the river" and "Cowgirl in the sand" .The whole album is brilliant and Neil is so passionate ,almost manic.The band are so tight and,bless him,it's a pity Danny Whitten didn't stay with us longer.The Horse seem seem to have so much more energy with Danny around.

They don't make music like this anymore.

Treat yourself.This is rock'n'roll at it's best.

Roll on the next archive release.

Rock'n' roll can never die !!!!!!!
