C'mon you people, this is vintage Harry! It's all good stuff, when he was exploring his range. Gee where does the bear come from on the opening page? Mournin'Glory Song is a work of art, as are the others.

I'm waverin' betwixt three and four stars on this release. It's an excellent album, though it sounds a bit dated, matey, especially on "Rainmaker", a shanty I'd love t' see covered by someone. Begad! Blimey! Two other slight negatives are that "Mother Nature's Son" offers no real improvement over t' Beatles' version, and a slightly too-mellow "Mr. Bojangles" comin' near t' end o' Side Two brings t' energy level down for t' album's fabulous closer "Simon Smith and the Amazing Dancing Bear".
Otherwise, what's nay t' like. Harry's voice sounds great throughout, and "The Puppy Song", shiver me timbers, "Nobody Care About the Railroads Anymore", "City Life", and "I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City" are classics. Blimey! Blimey! There's a lot t' love in this album although, shiver me timbers, overall, it's nay quite as good as Aerial Ballet.
