"I buyed this disc in LP format, the same that the Del Fuegos and Boston, mass. Fortunately I was in time also to buy it in CD format, but the first 2 never come to my country as CD's. Now we have in Europe a compilation called The Slash years that covers all the complete first disc, and all but a song from the second.
But what happen with the USA market? These guys where the most innovative and fresh band in the 80's in America. They deserve all their 3 first discs reissues inmediately on CD. Individually. Make justice at last, please.
A live reconding will be welcome also."

"When this album was released it received mixed reviews. I saw the band 'live' in London at this time and they were fantastic. I think that the production didn't help. After the bright, 'in your face' sound of Boston, Ma this seemed to have a dull edge to it and a lot of reviewers were put off by Dan Zanes lacklustre vocals. But I think the trouble was not Dan Zanes voice but the way he was recorded and produced. I love it. Time is a great revealer. The album flows really well. Killer tracks? Long Slide, Name Names, Town Called Love, I Can't Take This Place .... there are many. I now listen to this maybe more than any other Del Fuegos album altho Boston, Ma will always be my favourite. One last note. 'He Had A Lot To Drink Today'? Still undecided about this one after all these years. Sometimes I think it's great other times a dirge. Who cares! A 5 star album at the very least!"
