This is the debut album from UK band Mostly Autumn. They are playing rock mixed with reminiscences to Celtic music, Fairport Convention, Fleetwood Mac, Genesis, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd and Steeleye Span. This is a very strong debut album with a lot of power, great melodies and good musicianship from this band. They are using various untraditional instruments such as Djembe, flute, tambourine, violin and whistles together with traditional rock instruments. The highlights are the opening progressive track "Nowhere To Hide", the two beautiful Celtic folk rock tracks "Folklore" and "Shenanigans", the Irish influenced "Out Of The Inn" and the closing 10-minute "The Night Sky".

He released some forty albums over this period, composing the music and the majority of the lyrics. He released many hit singles, particularly between 1960 and the mid-seventies. Some of his songs have become classics of the French chanson.
