An album I was full of expactations because of the involvement of Jimi Hendrix, Spencer Davis, Dave Mason, Paul McCartney, John Mayall and Gary Walker, but as I have heard it I was a bit disappointed. "So much" and "Ex art student" are great. "Do you remember" brings the late Syd Barrett to mind. "Living room" is ok. Too bad that the other tracks are more or less (weak) pop songs or poems by Roger McGough. But maybe I'm unfair. Decide yourself.
This is the cd-reissue from 1989 (EMI CDP 7918772).

I agree this album is a bit of clunker. I just got this album a month ago after quite a few years of looking for a reasonably priced copy. Still, it has at least 3 good songs.
I love this one. A loose humorous record. Psychedelic pop, poetry and comedy numbers. swinging London 60's suff. If you're expecting a boogie woogie album, and/or doesn't have a sense of humor, you probably will be dissapointed.
(Mike) McGear is Paul McCartney's brother.
