AllMusic Review by

Spreading across a bonus-stacked reissue of their one and only album, and a six-track DVD of their promotional films, Nobody's Business emerge from this package sounding like the best band you've never heard of. One more in the long line of solid funk-rock bands led by onetime Procol Harum man Bobby Harrison, Nobody's Business pick up precisely where Snafu left off, with pulsating bass, contagious keys, and irresistible rhythms -- and one can only speculate why America didn't enfold them to its musical heart, especially when one remembers that bassist Tony Stevens was still relatively fresh from Foghat. Well, the fact that Nobody's Business was only released in Japan probably didn't help them, so the 2007 reissue isn't simply the album's CD debut, it's the Western premiere as well, the full original album plus a three-song demo that they recorded later in the year, in the hope of interesting Atlantic Records. They failed, but that's no reflection on the strength of the songs.
