One of the essential records of the 70s.
Review written by Anonymous, November 28th, 2004

Original lyrics and unforgettable tunes make this one classic record. I do hope this is available on CD soon.

Review written by Chris Yip, August 29th, 2004

I purchased the LP since on its first issue, and all these years I wanted to get a CD Edition, but failed! The trouble is that I no longer use a LP-player, the songs of the album never faded from my memory! I hope that the album will be released in CD one day and my comments would be proved correct!

Side two is the key to Flee
Review written by John Fitzgerald, August 29th, 2004

Many have dismissed this as "one of those religious Spencer records". I don't doubt that Jeremy was still very religious when he made this record but I think it was somewhat played down this time out as demonstrated on side one's best song, the remake of "When I looked to see the sunshine" (from the "Jeremy Spencer and the children" album) this time titled "Sunshine" you will notice the lyrics have been trimmed to good effect and this is far superior to the original recording, musically too. Surrounded by two rather embarrassing disco numbers, the opener "Deeper" and the lengthy, marginal improvement of "Love our way outta here', "Sunshine" has some fiery leads from Jeremy which will sound surprising to those familiar with his previous guitar stylings, and it must be him as there are no other guitarists listed on the record. Side two is a different story, more pop rock orientated and it's the way the whole album should have been. It kicks off with the impressive title track in it's haunting minor key followed by the smooth, catchy "Cool breeze". The rocker "You've got the right" oddly enough, has a rockabilly rumble that is reminiscent of something Billy Burnette would have done and Jeremy does a great job with it here. The best is saved for last, the single "Travellin'" should've been recognized more as it's a sweet, charming tune that I'm sure even those who didn't like Spencer before may change their mind after hearing this. I suppose this could apply to the whole album. Well, side 2 anyways

Billed as by "The Jeremy Spencer Band".

The liner notes also list "The Songbirds" for vocals but there is no indication as to who is included in "The Songbirds".
