4 stars Richard Sinclair's voice alone would make this record great, as it is we are presented with one of progs best ever sets. Even " Nine feet underground" which makes up side two is consistently good. Side one of the Vinyl release got played more than side two, but now it is on a cd the whole record gets played a great deal (by me). "Golf girl " is a great opening number displaying the pleasant Wimsey that seems to be Richards stock in trade (see Hatfield and the North)."Winter wine " is one of Caravan's best ever songs and deserves a place in your collection. "Love to love you " is the weakest cut on this excellent set but is still firmly on the pleasant side. "in the land of Grey and pink" is another great track full of clever if whimsical lyrics and delivers beautifully. If there is any criticism its that this album is a little light weight and doesnt take itself to seriously. However It makes a nice change to simply enjoy an LP and music for its own sake on occasions. Side two is more involved and jazzy. This record certainly gets four stars and deserves around 4.4 , a very pleasant addition to any collection and one that all the women in my life have loved.
