Review written by Jan Sottrup, June 13th, 2007

Country Joe McDonald told me in an interview April 1971 that 'the guitar player from Fleetwood Mac' had played on this album, as Green was recording at the same DeLane Lea Studio in London. The track being "Only Love Is Worth This Pain" with Alex Dmochowski on bass, who was featured on Green's 'The End Of The Game'. The lead lines sometimes melting together with a distant harmonica on the first version of the title track could be Peter Green as well.

Underrated moments included but overall bland
Review written by John Fitzgerald, February 27th, 2005

Strangely the CD edition of this album lists Peter Green as playing "electric guitar" on this album though it doesn't list which song(s) he's on though it has been reported that Green was on the album uncredited on three songs. The vinyl versions of this album do not list Green though it does interestingly list "Rockhead" as "electric guitar" on one of the three tracks Green has reportedly played on here. Unfortunately, I feel it is the weakest of the three in "Mr. big pig" (as it tries to be a funny attitude strut. It has a hard beat featuring piano chunks and the right channel has piercing guitar stabs throughout the track that may be "Rockhead" (AKA Peter Green). The other two tracks that apparently have Green on them are "Air Algiers" (which is an up-ish beater that has light plucky electric guitar in the right channel (though I honestly never would've guessed/known it was Pete had I not been told) and the mid pace acoustic doodle "Only love is worth the pain".(which again, in the right channel, has watery electric guitar touches that do sound more recognizable as Green licks, if they are in fact his). As for the rest, we generally get better as we go along but there is the "too little too late" thought that arises when assessing this album. The opening "Hold on it's coming no. 1" is a rather monotonal fast acoustic strummer while the closing "Hold on it's coming no. 2" is a piano led clapping version of " 1" and the electric guitar helps this version of the track out but the fiddle presence makes you yearn for " 1". "Playing with fire" is a quick speed piano pounder, "Travelling" has nice electric piano flourishes and the acoustic guitar strums sound tastier here than on the other tracks but unfortunately, the track doesn't have a great hook. "Joe's blues" (predictably) is an ineffective slow acoustic guitar mope. Along with "Only love is worth this pain", "Balancing on the edge of time" is one of the best tracks here. It's an acoustic grabber with an Al Stewart type feel that has working emotional touches and "Jamila" is a good dramatic piano/bongo thumper. It's hard to say how well this album holds up to McDonald's earlier Country Joe & The Fish material but fans of early 70's folkish music may enjoy this regardless.
