Some on side one are very catchy side two is not
Review written by John Fitzgerald, May 27th, 2005

As the leader of some obscure 70's British pub rock bands such as Headstone, Ashton's second solo offering is pretty impressive in that he wrote all the songs himself but side two is noticeably weaker than side one. As the album starts out with a promising rocker like "Dancing in the street" and a nice slower number called "Blue blue nights". the flip side just doesn't have the catch. Mark can sound a bit like David Bowie (vocally) during the Ziggy Stardust period but there is some unpredictable moments like the mellow close of "One more chance" and the fierce solo that ends "In the street" which reminds me of Dave Flett's work with Manfred Mann's Earth Band (but he's not on the record) speaking of appearances, Bob Weston is listed as being on the record but it doesn't say what songs he's on though. I'll give this an average rating because of side two but it's a very high three stars because of side one.
