Review by Matti
4 stars Another single outtake from the Moodies' classic line-up's second album In Search of the Lost Chord. The highly innovative and eclectic album opens with rather experimental 'Departure' which is seamlessly followed by the fast rock song 'Ride My See-Saw'. It has became an evergreen, often performed in their concerts. And why not, it's a pleasantly catchy rock song finished with the excellent vocal harmonies. Not very proggy, though.

The real treat is on the B side: Mike Pinder's 'Simple Game' didn't make it into the album -- which definitely contains some weaker weaker material in comparison. It starts a bit mildly, but when it gets to the powerful section, it's obvious that it's one of Pinder's masterpieces (of course a minor one compared to the more epic pieces such as 'Have You Heard?' or 'My Song'). But this is just as effective in the emotional sense; all those marvelous songs were born from Pinder's aching view on the world around him.

For an excellent non-album song this is a four-star single.
