TJR says

Starts off well with a cover - “Come On Down To My Boat” (originally done as "Come And Take A Ride In My Boat" by The Rare Breed in 1966) and I’m thinking yep, double handclap pop vibe, nice organ, cool bassline. I’m into it. The rest are all originals – unfortunately nothing else hits as hard as that opener, although “Allison Dozer” comes pretty close - they do seem to be at their best when they let rip with a bit more abandon, pushing that organ into the red. Elsewhere, things are a fair bit more tame as they veer between many of the flower pop combos of the day, probably falling somewhere between the Lovin’ Spoonful, The Kinks and The Monkees. A band very much in the shadows…
