    One of the first lp's that I ever owned and I have fond memories of it. It's not the best 10cc album by a long chalk, but .... it has one of the best guitar solos of all time tucked away in the final track (Feel The Benefit, Part 3). A tremendous climax and a wonderfully constructed piece by Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman that gets me every time I play it. Stewart especially was a very underrated guitarist and deserves great credit for his musicianship as well as his songwriting. The album is worth procuring simply for this highlight, IMHO.
