AllMusic Review by

Less of the Morris dancing, a little less of the ancient instruments approach (though Phil Pickett is certainly not wasted on this album) and a deal more of the updated rock approach to things. This excellent reissue is well worth adding to a folk-rock collection, mind you, with selections that range from the gruffly rough ("Poor Old Horse") to the thoughtful ("Gresford Disaster") and sometimes all the way to the downright jolly -- keeping in mind that outfits such as the Albion Band paved the way for the more worldly malarkey of bands such as 3 Mustaphas 3, Cordelia's Dad and Boiled in Lead.
