"Tomorrow Night." Very catchy hook.

Ditto John DuCann- exciting stuff.

Talking of 'stuff', I saw DuCann's post-Rooster's band live Hard Stuff

they were good

Robust stuff

Very much enjoyed Vug, really breaks things up after the title track, leads into the heavier rock (with a pop edge) of Tomorrow Night.

Interesting Chris- in my view it gets stronger and stronger to a climatic finish

Wash those cloth-ears out!





:lol:


Well, I have had the album many years and not listened for a long while.

It was listed in the Trouser Press 'albums from the 1970s you may have missed',a feature which closed the decade. The magazine has returned on-line in fine form, I will see if I can get a link to that edition up here.

Rather a church organ sound on the Seven Nights intro, almost always a big plus in my books & no exception on this song.

Ah! They don't exactly overpraise it! So that review may have coloured my own views as a teenager - I made an effort to seek out all the albums on the list, whatever the cost.

"Seven Lonely Streets" is probably my favorite track on this album. Great hard rock riff and Crane's organ fills flying over everything. I love DuCann's vocals on this album too.
