It is a brilliant album full of blues – just oozing from every pore.

Fool For Your Loving”” starts things off on a high – it really is a wonderful song(!) – and things just shoot along nicely from there on in. Rockers such as “”Sweet Talker”” & “”Ready & Willing”” are offset with “”Blindman”” & “”Ain’t Gonna Cry . . .””.

Tongue in cheek(?) “”Love Man”” (Did Mr C. actually believe is own lyrics?) and the boogie fest – there was always one per album – of “”Black & Blue”” all combine to make one heck of a fine album. “”Carry Your Load”” & “”She A Woman”” round things off nicely. Proving once again that the ‘British’ version of the band were always the best. Not only that but this line-up, with Moody, Marsden, Lord, Paice & Murray were never to be topped.

Lord & Paice were to leave after this to re-join the re-formed Purple. This is a lasting testament to a great band on great great form on a great album.
