When this disc was released my first thought upon getting my hands on a copy was "what the hell is Wet Willie doing making a record in England"? Back then I didn't get it. Nowadays I still don't get it, but I've grown to accept it and have actually grown to like this release quite a bit. Back in the day though it was too polished and too Un-Wet Willie for me to really take it seriously. It's not Wet Willie's fault I couldn't keep up with the evolution of the band....every band goes thru changes and the music they make evolves, grows, changes, just like the people in the band do. For this record half of the original group had gone their own way, so this record is als the result of two new guitar players and a new drummer. Michael Duke kinda came in halfway thru the movie too so really the only "original" members were the Hall brothers.
While this isn't one of my favorite Wet Willie albums it is a good disc and if you're any kind of a Wet Willie fan at all then you need this to complete the collection anyhow. There's still looks of good Jimmy Hall vocals and harp and that's worth the price of admission by itself, especially these days where there's damn few out there who could hold a candle to Jimmy's talent.
