If one looks at the Strawbs first "real" album as a debut it's a very promising beginning. The only problem is that some of the tune are over-arranged. It's a pity because the songwriting and the performance are exellent. Some of the tunes are very strong indeed - "Or I'm I Dreaming", "Poor Jimmy Wilson" and "Where Am I" are among the strongest on the album. And "The Battle" point out the direction the band took in the early 70's. A very strong selection of songs with a few hit and misses!
