AllMusic Review by

CD reissue of this odd group's 1971 album, a competent mix of 1970 British pop and progressive styles, with dashes of blues, funk, and country-rock. It's not bad -- kind of like a somewhat poppier spin on much of the rock you would have heard on FM radio around the early '70s -- but neither is it much of a sparkling find. Isolated cuts stand out, like Polle Eduard's acoustic gypsy-flavored "Beggar Man," with its echoes of folk-rockers like Nick Drake and Tim Buckley. "Funky" is a rather pleasing soul/jazz/rock instrumental groover, and the oldies covers vary from a nice "In My Room" to a horrific Elvis medley.
