"One of my favorite NRBQ releases, probably one of the few that captures the live essence of the band. Mainly because it's goofy (Roll Call, Music Goes 'Round and Around), sweet (Never Take the Place of You, Beverly), and flat out rocking (Want You to Feel Good Too, Me and the Boys). All in all, one of the essential Q releases to have in your collection, a must have. If you're view of the band is limited to "Me and the Boys" and "Riding in My Car," man, get a load of "You Can't Hide." and call me in the morning..."
An overlooked gem

"It's hard to say which NRBQ record is their best (although you really can't go wrong with most of the ones they made while guitarist Al Anderson was on board), but this is certainly a fine offering. In addition to such rousing tracks as "Me and The Boys," "Music Goes Round and Around," and "You Can't Hide," the Q show their softer side with Joey Spampinato's "Beverly," as well as Al Anderson's sincere "Feel You Around Me" and "Never Take the Place of You." In addition, Terry Adams provides comic relief with his "Definition of Love" (check your dictionary) and "Hobbies," a delightfully quirky 'instrumental' (he sings the wordless melody). Spampinato's "That I Get Back Home" neatly manages to maintain a driving urgency without rushing it. Don't be surprised if you find it difficult to get these tunes out of your head. They're catchy and well-played by a line-up whose natural chemistry allowed them to cook, swing, sizzle, and tear it up, all seemingly without effort. They just made it look and sound easy."
