AllMusic Review by

This six-track EP marked the end of the Shanes' recording contract with Strange Ways Records. Here they venture into Irish folk music with the traditional song "King of the Fairies" and sing their first French-language number, "Paris S'Eveille." The title track, with its jangly, rootsy feel, could serve as an anthem for Bruce Springsteen or Ian Hunter. Sailor's "A Glass of Champagne" is also resurrected, making this collection a real world music smorgasbord, albeit a concise one.
