TJR says

Breakthrough LP from the 25-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist, with experienced producer Glyn Johns (Steve Miller, The Who, The Stones) enriching the whole with applomb, enlisting members of Fairport Convention and the Faces to season pop-rock flavours various, from folk to jazz to reggae. The album gave Joan her first UK hit (#12), with the classic lead single, “Love And Affection”, hitting #10 in the UK Pop Charts, striking a blow for quality songwriting. Inexplicably, the follow up single “Down To Zero” failed to chart. That's the fickle public for you. Album lovers know best I think.
