Hard rock and r’n’b played with a lot of energy, features a large band providing a full sound. Alongside two guitarists (Steve Simpson also playing mandolin), drums and bass also get Poli Palmer on vibes/synths, Tim Hinkley on piano and Nic Pentelow on Saxophone. And many will recognise bassist Boz Burrell.
Roger Chapman has been around for a long time and released a range and quantity of material. This album is a definite career highlight, from a time when the UK was succumbing to New Wave. Here in its entirety with extensive liner notes and a bonus track. A very decent package. ****

…finds Roger and his band in excellent form…The quality is excellent…fans and admirers alike will love to have a copy of the release…

The former Family frontman and his free blowing band stomp their way through blockbusters like ‘Prisoner’, ‘Soldier’ and ‘Who Pulled The Night Down’ with the power and passion which has become a Chapman trademark over the years
Kevin Bryan, Stirling Advertiser
A little too muso for mainstream success, perhaps, Chapman seems content with his place in the European market…serving up raw-throated rock to a devoted following who couldn’t care less about any hip quotient.

..This set really does capture what Roger Chapman is all about…
