OK, it's one half of Peter & Gordon and so the liner notes claim that Gordon Waller was a product of the sixties. But, luckily, this is now a completely different Gordon: relaxed and much more mature. Then, the music. Did Jim Croce have a retarded brother? Obviously he did. The efficient backing band plays all possible stereotypes from the americana catalogue, and even expands it! The only track barely acceptable is written by Wainwright, everything else is of the lowest imaginable interest. A record as bad as its reputation. Probably this is the rarest regularly released Vertigo album, as almost no copies were sold in 1972. Sometimes there is some justice in record land after all.

Our hero sports a Crosby-moustachio and a hat and is cuddling a flock of poultry on the front. Pretty cosy. The picture is slightly raised and printed on a glossy paper, whereas the border is not. This is a single cover, not a gatefold! On the back Gordon stands in the door opening of a large hall that is totally devoid of any furniture and looks stripped and abandoned. Not cosy, but somehow better.
The lettering is quite common, but its bordering ornaments are beautiful and well-chosen.
