"I have always considered this to be Pete Townsend's best side project. A collection of excellent folk rock and rock songs written and performed by Townsend and Lane. This does not sound even remotely like the who."
"This is one of my favorite bands, but I am not sure how to describe this record. Many beautiful folk rock songs. Some very strange and wonderful rockers. Add a bit of harpischord and other classical intrumentation. Listen to "Morning song" in samples."
"I like this collection even better that the original vol. one. This one brings in more current country traditionalists like Emmylou Harris to play with the band. She makes the comment tha music is best when it has the feel of people playing and singing in their living room for the pure joy of it. A lot of this record has that feel."
"I remember reading that this album was recorded in seven days. Heavy metal meets the blues. Great heavy blues jams. Also check the two disc set of live british radio sessions of early Zeppelin. It has incredible versions of most of these songs."
"Nick Drake recorded this one at home and dropped it off on producer Joe Boyd's steps. No extra drums or elaborate studio production. Just incredible vocals and guitar playing. He would soon be dead at age 24."
