"This is Koss`s epitaph..leaves in the wind indeed.
This album demonstrates why Koss had more soul in his little finger than the speed freaks of flash guitar.
If this album doesn`t move you,check your pulse!"
Funky souly gutsy 70s bluesrock with a sensitive side

"Funky souly gutsy 70s bluesrock with a sensitive side. This is *so* much better than the rather banal first album. The band's sound is quite complex in places and there are few weaknesses in terms of musicianship (*everything* is good). Many tracks are characterized by interesting and unusual changes of key and pace, e.g., the band can go from an upbeat funky style to melancholy in a few bars (Leaves in the Wind): impressive. Most of the songs are about either lost love or love gone bad -- right in the Free / Bad Company tradition. Favourite tracks: Blue Soul; Stop Doing What You're Doing; Sweet Sweet Beauty. This stuff is 30 years old in 2006: they just don't make 'em like this anymore. Its a classic but known to only a few.
A Poignant Tribute...

"A wonderful final recording from Paul Kossoff, with some great songs. (although, I have seen comment that a lot of the guitar work was performed by a Paul Kossoff imitator, called Buzz Walden; who is curiously mentioned and acknlowledged on the back album cover). Whatever. There are some great songs here; from the very soul like Some Kind of Happy, thru to the more rocky (but well-balanced) Selfish Lover and Just For You with ballads Sweey Beauty and Leaves in the Wind rounding the album out. The latter been particularly poignant, given this LP was released after Paul Kossoff's death.It is a much stronger (though not as gritty) recording than the first recording, When The Band Plays On..I wonder when this recording will be re-released on CD; as I am relying on a Vinyl recording that I digitised onto CD."
