4 stars I'm really surprised by the low rating the other reviewers have given this album. With any Harper album, there's bound to be a weak track on even his best albums; in this case, it's "Watford Gap" (it's not a bad song, just inessential). However, the rest of the tunes should appeal to fans of Harper's music. The first "One of Those Days in England" is one of his poppiest - and best - songs. The concluding 20-minute part 2 is among the finest of Harper's longer songs. The acoustic guitar in "These Last Days" might remind some of the slower section of Floyd's "Dogs," and is also a strong song. The other two songs, "Cherishing the Lonesome" and "Naked Flame," grow in appeal with repeated listenings. All in all, this might not be the first album one should get by Harper, but everything he released in the 1970s should be owned by Harper fans (and Floyd fans and Zeppelin fans), and this one is no exception.
