3 stars The Belfast-based, and in my opinion all too underrated Fruupp were founded in 1971 and they released four albums. This single preceded their third album titled The prince of Heaven's Eyes, which confusingly didn't contain 'Prince of Heaven'. Anyway the song's musical style is much more comparable to the following album than to the edgier Future Legends (1971) or hazier- sounding Seven Secrets (1974). The melodies are catchier than before in this upbeat and tight song. It would have been a nice addition to the following album, in which 'Annie Austere' has rather similar energetic atmosphere. As a whole, the album is better than those two faster songs.

'The Jaunting Car' on the B side is a short and joyfully rollicking instrumental, something one could imagine hearing in a dialogueless, comical scene of a film set in the British countryside, perhaps before the war. (This is just my own association.) Not quite Benny Hill stuff but close.

[ For the music I rate the single only 2 stars, but for having two non-album songs it can be rounded up, so and so. ]
