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