Deep Purple, Mark II was disintegrating at this time. Ritchie has later admitted that he kept his best material away from this album. Thank you, that explains a lot.

This albums opens with the rather good Woman From Tokyo. It continues with Mary Long, a rather vicious attack on Mary Whitehouse. The rather substandard melody does not help either. I have no wishes to run through the other songs here. They are all a mix of second hand blues and pop. These songs have no direction and no purpose. Not to mention quality. Only John Lord comes out of this album with his dignity in reasonable good shape. The rest should hang their heads in shame........... which they actually has done many times. This album is only saved by Woman From Tokyo and some decent playing by John Lord. The rest of this album is a turkey.
