5 stars I finally got this!!! As other forum members know, I have wanted this forever.

I won't go into the description, as tszirmay has already done a beautiful history, outline, and playful commentary on this master work. I will say, that if you like English, Caravanish, pastoral (but with guts) settings, this is the album for you. Perfectly recorded, produced and arranged. The instrumentation is quaint and exquisitely played. The vocals are those that make English bands so personal and yet professional. The small amount of spoken word is done with the beautiful/playfull English signature.

A note must be said here - anything Rupert Hine touches is wonderful. He is the finest of producers and musians one could ask for. Mix that with a true writer and dreamer in Mr. Perry and you get this absolutely essential record.

Hopefully Voiceprint, or one of the new companies doing remasters, will release this again so that others can enjoy this beautiful work.

The English continue to inspire after all of these years - it must be The Real Ale!
