Another excellent find on the Roddus hard drive today, this wonderful debut album by this short lived but much regarded country rock group from the UK. This is another great rarity from the awesome Rare MP3 Blog. Had this on repeat for the later part of the day and for a double album by such an obscure act, it sure holds up well throughout and has also aged very well. Alt country or Americana was alive and well in England  with this bunch way back then, with some nice jazzy bits and plenty of great pop/rock and a bit of prog thrown in for good measure. Plenty of great guitar licks and the impressive and beautiful guitar break in Song for Suzie foreshadows Dire Straits. A quick review as the rugby is on, rating 4/5.
