Memories of an 18 year old
G. Shaw | Nr Winslow, Bucks United Kingdom | 07/01/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of Jack's great albums. The strength of writing is univesally strong and the musicianship - as one would expect - of the highest quality.The album was written and rehearsed at an old manor house on Exmoor in the wilds of North Devon in England during the Summer of 1980. I was working there as a callow youth and my abiding memories of that time:-1. Waking up to hear Jack working on Bird Alone - with its remarkable riff.
2. Playing Billy's drum kit oblivious to the fact that the entire band was watching my pathetic endeavours,
3. Being comprehensively outplayed at tennis by Clem Clemson
4. Drinking Guiness with Billy and helping him home!!
5. Playing scrabble - and losing - with Jack and Pete BrownOh and then there was the music.For a good idea of what the band sounded live at this time look to the live album - Doing this on Ice."
Jack in the post 70s...

"For 1980's "I've Always Wanted To Do This," Jack Bruce took a step out of the 'self-indulgent-ME' 70s and leapt out into the world of click tracks, digital reverb and tight studio (albeit bare) production. The album has a feel which can only be found on releases from 1980-1982, but that's okay. Frankly, this IS NOT one of my favorites (thought Hit and Run is quite catchy); and if you're not keen on that particularly thin, dry, 80s Studio-Sound, you probably won't like this...However, it truly is a period piece, and though it may not shine like 1971's Harmony Row or 1977's How's Tricks, it is certainly akin to Picasso's 'blue' period pieces; a slight departure, but nonetheless brilliant..."
