Jeremy's talents shine to the full
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 28th, 2004

Although it was intended as the partner for "Then play on", this is a great companion piece to "Kiln house" as it showcases Jeremy's prowess of lampooning, better than "Kiln house" does. Spencer is not too malicious in his satires as one can here the innocence of the recording shine through clearly projecting his genuine love for the styles included. To show he can take it as well as dish it out, he even has a stab at himself and his mimicry of Elmore James numbers with the Mac on "Don't go please stay". As one could guess, there are a few Elvis send ups, "The shape I'm in" & "You made a it" are of the "Don't be cruel" & "All shook up" variety while Jeremy closes the album with "If I could swim the mountain", a poke at the Elvis ballads taken to the limit of hilarity. There's the Buddy Holly "Peggy Sue" gallop of "Linda", The Beach boys surfing style with "Surfin' girl", Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd psychedelia in "Take a look around Mrs. Brown" (which has some ironic Hare Krishna chants towards the end), heavy rockers which want to be thought of as bluesmen in the throbbing "Mean blues", Bo Diddley in "Here comes Charlie (with his dancing shoes on)" and last but not least teen idol ballads in "String a long" (with guest Peter Green on Banjo), the irresistible "Jenny Lee" and my personal favorite "Teenage love affair". Don't worry if you missed out on the first fifteen years of rock and roll, this album will bring you up to date like you haven't missed a thing.
