It's a pity the single "It's You" didn't make a 7" release to accompany this fine piece of vinyl? though it was released as a 12" picture disc in Italy for a short time, but a 7" single would have been nice. Bonediggin' was supposed to be the next single as far as I know? Smile

Agree that it's a really good album. Pity they returned with the covers album and not with this.

'Man With No Name' is my favourite on the album - superb song.

I never liked the sound quality of the CD It's a bit loud and hard on the ear, I prefer the sound of the LP It's not compressed and has a richer sound. my favorite track is Keep On Learning Smile

Fabulous album - matched the live experience.

Amazing version of Bonediggin' but loved most of it, after thinking they'd lost their minds over Today's Specials, was a relief to hear the energy back in the band.

Some very good songs on this. Leave It Out , Stand Up and Call Me Names among my favourites.
Would I be right in saying that this album was aimed directly at the American market. It has got that American ska feel to it.

Think I bought the CD release in 1999, much to my surprise since I didn't know that they reformed in some way. Musically I was pleased with the fresh sounds, the uplifting melodies but I missed a lot Terry's distinctive and angry vocals.
My favourite was "No big Deal".
