As it turned out, due to promotional work only two of the band could make it and they played an acoustic show, which went down very well. Possibly helped by the singer, Tim, having the kind of cheeky grin that has probably got him into (and back out of!) all sorts of trouble. Whilst their acoustic work was pretty impressive, I preferred the rockier sound I'd heard on My Space and the chance to get their debut album and get it signed for £5 was too good to pass up. After all, I expected to enjoy it and I was right, although repeated listens have dulled my initial enthusiasm a little.
Overall, this is a superb album and from the first time I heard it, I adored it. Admittedly, after repeated listens it does start to lose some of the appeal, but it's a very rare album that does that and in the case of this album, even that took several months of listening to very little else. This is an album that has some great high points and even the low points aren't bad, just a little bland and not quite in keeping with their own high standards.
There's nothing terribly new here, as they sound too much like the Faces to claim originality, but there is a lot to be enjoyed.Read more ›
Highlight for me is the playing of Danny Kirwan, who was a fine, expressive player, with an instantly recognisable style. I think it's worth buying just to hear him again!
All in all, a good purchase for those familiar with 60s British blues, but perhaps not one to buy as an introduction to it.
