4.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful record November 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a big fan of both The Action and the first Mighty Baby album, I'd been looking forward to hearing this for many years. And, while it's a very different animal than what came before it, I think it's a very moving piece. "The Happiest Man in the Carnival", in particular, is worth the price of admission alone.

Coupled with excellent packaging and a recent interview with the entire band, this is a must for fans of the band.

2.0 out of 5 stars if you love the first LP, beware! November 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although A Jug Of Love is recorded and played well enough, it has none of the magic of the first LP. Gone is the mysticism and wonder of tracks like Egyptian Tomb, House With No Windows, etc. Instead what you get is a band that must have thought they were going to be the UK answer to the Grateful Dead. No thanks. I was braced for the bluesy elements but they are not even all that present. It just sounds like a bunch of stoners jamming. No real songs and Martin Stone's guitar playing is completely different than on the first LP. Pushed to the back of mix even and played clean and dry (I loved the power of Stone's guitar on the first LP). For collectors only!

3.0 out of 5 stars LANGUID WEST COAST STYLE ALBUM October 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album usually gets a bad rap. And that's too bad. It's mostly because of the stylistic changes that occurred in the band's sound. By this time MIGHTY BABY had become influenced by Eastern religion, and several (primarily) West Coast bands like THE BYRDS, THE FLYING BURRITO BROTHERS, and the GRATEFUL DEAD, among others. The approach and the very sound from the first album to this, their second, is like night and day. Even the album cover for this album is reminiscent of THE BYRDS' "Fifth Dimension" album cover. The tunes range from 3 to 3 1/2 "stars", to each his own.

But it's the playing and singing that's the real story here. Gone is the sharp playing by guitarist Martin Stone, the forward thinking (for the time) arrangements, and the more individualistic vocal style of the first album. In it's place was a more languid playing style and a lot of close harmony singing. Beginning with the first track, it's evident that the band had been heavily influenced by the above bands. The arrangements-both vocally and instrumentally-had drastically changed, and morphed into an English approximation of the West Coast sound heard in the above bands. But MIGHTY BABY weren't slavish imitators of that sound. They incorporated it into their own approach to music making.

Apparently this change was too much for fans of the band's first album (as it was for me a bit)-which is a lesser known classic of it's kind. But this second album isn't bad-just different. Everyone thought (and hoped) that the band would continue to refine the sound heard on their first album, but they took a left turn. Yet the tight but loose style of playing, the close vocals, and the generally laid back sound is actually pretty good.
