3 stars I must of missed out on Alive and Well beacuse this album is not like Softs, but it's going in the Rubber Rift jingle section kind of.I just can't figure out this album is it soft jazz? Soft Rock? A bit confused but the album is a lukewarm complation of sorts. And look at the famous and underground stars album Jack Bruce who Marshall played for,Alan Holdsworth. John Tayor who played with Duke Ellington Mick Morrissey and Tony Rivers from that doo- wop group. I am leaving some names mostly popular session people. The songs are quirky to put it but the stand outs, well most of the songs have all the same fill and jist to them so I really counldn't tell you but the funny and most laughable is Alot of What You Fancy, that little ditty can get stuck in you head and you will probably want to hum it in your worsed voice. But over all a kind of pleasent way to say goodby to one of the best obscured jazz- rock outfits in all of England.
