This album brings Harry's wit and dramatic vocals together. It is most interesting to hear the emotions he brings to a song, like "I Don't Need You". The only weakness on this album is Eric Idle's introductory song "Harry". Sure it's cute the first time, especially if you are a Python fan, but it doesn't fit.

A forgotten coda to Harry's late '70's period; as good as any of his albums from '74 on except for Knnillssonn. An extremely hard to find gem any fan would love to have, including the fabulous introductory rendition of "Harry" by Eric Idle. Harry's restraint on "Bright Side of Life" is amazing - a virtuoso whistler, yet he barely wets his whistle at all on this rendition; a great understatement. And the musicians: Steve Cropper, Donald "Duck" Dunn, Ringo Starr, and so many others, simply astounding that this was never released in the U.S. But in 1980, this was no where, unfortunately. Get this!

I treasure this album, and hope that it will - eventually - be released on CD.
