This album is one of John Martyn's more experimental works. Trippy surreal atmospheres, reggaeesque rhythms and jazzy vibes. Well known and appreciated for the interesting collaborations, including Lee Perry on "Big Muff", and Steve Winwood's keyboards especially in "Small Hours" and "Dealer". "Small Hours" was later reworked by Martyn into the track "Anna" as the haunting backdrop for Esben Storm's 1978 Australian film production of In Search of Anna. This version of "Anna" also appears on Martyn's live album Live At The Bottom Line, New York, 1983.
