AllMusic Review by

Originally titled Workers Playtime, this album was attributed to B.B. Blunder when it was first released in 1971. It appears under the Blossom Toes discography because it was reissued, confusingly, as New Day in 1989 by Decal, who attributed the LP not to B.B. Blunder, but to "Blossom Toes '70 (formerly B.B. Blunder)." Featuring ex-Blossom Toes Brian Godding, Brian Belshaw, and Kevin Westlake, B.B. Blunder's sole outing had some nice typically thick circa 1970-British rock guitars, and some bits of promising melodies buried in the mix. Overall, though, one gets the impression that the group went into the studio before getting the songs into shape -- there's a lot of meandering, and the songs either don't say much or never get to the point. Mick Taylor makes a little-known cameo appearance on bottleneck guitar on "New Day."
