1 stars A good old cassingle designed to sell albums to the masses with no frills packaging and the same dang song on both sides. This is nothing more than a promotional tool to get some attention. Of course it did not work as we are aware now, but nice try guys. The song is not all that bad, a sacharinne sugar coated love ballad by Lake, but not his worst. It isn't "Love Beach". It comes from "Black Moon" that I thought had some great tracks on it overall.

Lake is singing differently than his usual style on the obligatory ballad that graced many ELP albums of the 70s. It is a pleasant listen that suits radio play with its non prog style and short air time of 3:47, and the melody is infectious after a few listens. The single like the album plummeted off the charts. This is worth grabbing especially for collectors as these things are rare these days. One star for the rarity if you are an ELP completist.
