Reviews from
Offering up a mixture of originals and popular covers (Bob Dylan, The Troggs, The Who), musically the set wasn't particularly original. With the band credited with half the material, tracks such as 'The Sky That Is Blue', 'Zepplin's Good Friday' and 'Yesterday's Child' showcased a tasty blend of tight, Beatlesque harmonies and surprisingly commercial melodies. It wasn't perfect with the band occasionally drifting too close to Mamas & Papas-styled MOR ('Gigi'). Far more impressive were the band's stabs at a harder rock sound, including the fuzz guitar and feedback propelled 'Where Oh Where Is Mother' and their vox-powered cover of Dylan's 'Baby Blue'; always liked the song's sitar fadeout. All told, the results weren't half bad; an album I pull out from time to time.

The non-LP 45 track "Portrait Of Youth" is an excellent track, other than that I'm not a great fan of this outfit. The LP has covers of the Who, Troggs, Dylan and more. The band had an earlier local 45 as the Obvious on the Cheetah label. The band is often linked to Dragonfly, but we've been unable to find any obvious connection except the "Portrait" track and the label.
