For an album recorded in 1973, this sounds remarkably contemporary. The songs are well crafted and some later became Only Ones songs. They shared the recording studio with Lou Reed and it is no suprise that his vocals do sound a little like Reeds. A nice price at around £4 and well worth buying and listening

By Eric R. Last - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These songs were demos recorded by Peter Parrett's pre-"Only Ones" band, "England's Glory", and not released until after the Only Ones' success turned Parrett into a cult star and created a market for his earliest recordings. The band also features Harry Kakouli, who later became the bass player for Squeeze. The sound is a blatant rip off of Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, so much so that I'd bet if you played this for a Velvets fan and told him these were newly-discovered lost Velvets recordings, he'd never suspect that it's really a different group altogether. The liner notes go to great lengths to say that in fact, Parrett was more influenced at the time by Dylan than Reed, but listening to this makes that claim hard to believe. Anyway, regardless of how deliberate the Velvets homage is, this is still pretty good music, and anyone who likes both the Only Ones and Lou Reed will probably like this.
