This is one of the few albums I still listen to on vinyl. The opening sound of Squire with it's acoustic guitar, drums and bass has a very warm, welcoming 70's sound reminiscent of early Neil Young. On first listening it's like a lucky bag of Alan Hull's material covering a variety of moods and sounds from Rock 'n Roll (Nuthin' Shakin') to slow ballads (One more Bottle of Wine), whilst the lyrics are typically Alan Hull, one minute overtly political and the next helplessly romantic. Whilst there is some inconsistency with mood and themes, the overall quality is excellent.

I have to admit, this was one of the last records I expected to get a cd release. Sat at the back of my aging lp collection alongside stuff like Lindisfarnes 'Happy Daze', New Worlds 'Believe in music' and Hot Chocolates 'Cicero Park' I just felt there would never be the commercial viability of putting on disc. However, here it is, so it's time for reappraisal.
Hull recorded this in between being in and out of Lindisfarne. 'Waiting' had already seen the light of day on the b-side of 'Justanothersadsong' from the superior 'Pipedream' solo album. What is left is a hotch potch of songs. Standout tracks are 'Picture a little girl' with its beautiful instrumental accompaniment, 'One more bottle of wine' (later revived in Lindisfarne live shows) and the title track.
The sleeve notes are interesting, the extra tracks ok. Buy it for completeness but don't expect a classic album. Didn't chart by the way. Keep the vinyl copy if you have it as it may be worth a few bob in the future.

Great songs, not impressed with the sound quality of the CD. NOt as crisp and clear as the original vinyl.

fascinating album, recorded in a hurry with many of his Lindisfarne mates. Mix of styles and the title track and dan the plan are highlights. Key part of this great songwriter's legacy

Saw Alan many a time with Lindisfarne - this is a solo treat!
