    Beachbeatle1
    Dreamy folksy/country collection + some pop/rock leanings supported by gifted multi-instrumentalist Davey Johnstone & clear Gus Dudgeon production. Full of gorgeous melodies & harmonies, arpeggiated guitars & mandolins, pedal steel guitar embellishments, bells, chirping flutes, gentle percussions & occasional droning bowed bass or sitar ornamentations.
    Rollicks along pleasantly.
