5 stars Whoa -

Are the reviews posted to date insane or am I just more mature? More likely, a little of both. This is an excellent album, albeit disturbing, for everyone expected a Free Hand, which I believe was great but for raw feeling, this is it.

I have to laugh for "Timing" and "Another Show" are the best songs on this album, regardless of other people's panning. Primarily because they capture that aforementioned, raw feeling and do not have Kerry Minnear's bleatings. I love KM but he should have let Derek do the singing. Regardless, revisiting this album after 36+ years made me appreciate it even more. Maybe we all should.

I seek no quarrel with my fellow GG fans but after revisiting all my recordings, "Timing" just rocks, plus it follows their own admission that they were just a rock and roll band, and a good one at that.

Finally, Gary Green is playing around the globe in various venues in a band named Three Friends, he has acquired numerous, excellent, musicians and they have captured what was and what can still be. See them! I saw them in Saint Charles, Illinois, USA in October, 2012. The Spirit Lives On!
