This album knocked me out in a way no other JLH album ever has. Unlike most Hook albums, all of which are good, but many of which contain only a few great sounding tracks surrounded by solid material in support, this one rocks from beginning to end. Maybe it's that word: "rocks." I mean, it really does have the appeal of a rock and roll record - sounds great, snazzy horn bits enliven many tunes, there's a grand swing to the rhythm of every cut - it just makes you wanna move. And Hook's voice - what an amazing instrument. Like Johnny Cash, he's just got that remarkable command and no matter what he's singing you're gonna listen and it sounds fifty-six times more important than any other living human singing the same words. And don't get me wrong, the words aren't a problem here - in fact, nothing is a problem, even the way most songs fade out like they're single edits or something, leaving you with the taste in your mouth wanting more every time out. This is simply a great album, period.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: unless otherwise noted, ALL records are graded visually, and NOT play-graded!; we grade records under the strong, diffuse room light or discrete sunlight)
(a) WE GRADE THE VINYL AS EXCELLENT. This is one of those albums that are somewhat difficult to grade. It is somewhere between VG++ and NEAR MINT, just a notch below NEAR MINT. A few light abrasions ARE visible, but they are extremely shallow, superficial and only moderately visually distracting (nothing significant).For the most part, the vinyl looks impeccable without any MAJOR visual flaws or imperfections. Much of the original luster is intact, and the vinyl shines and sparkles almost like new.
(b) The record has a "deep groove" (an indent in the label about 1/2-inch from the edge of the label, which on SOME labels is associated with very early or first pressings).
(c) The record is pressed on a beautiful, thick, inflexible vinyl, which was usually used for the first or very early pressings. Usually, the sound on such thick vinyl pressings is full-bodied, vivid, and even dramatic. Do not expect to obtain such a majestic analog sound from a digital recording!
(d) Of course, this is a full-bodied ANALOG recording, and not an inferior, digital recording!!!
THE COVER IS NICE --- ABOUT VERY GOOD++ (VG++).
The following flaws or imperfections are noted on the cover:
- Cover has a partially split spine (between 1 and 2 inches / 2.5 to 5 centimeters)
- Cover has some visible fraying/tattering on all three seams
- Cover has two corners slightly worn
- Cover has some light ring wear (nothing significant); On the scale from 1 to 10 (1 being the least, and 10 being the most severe), we assess the severity of ring wear as 3
- Back cover has circular tarnish (grayish, dust-covered sections, which closely follow the contour of the record), probably caused by friction or by rubbing against other covers during the storage. The tarnish is similar in appearance to a common ring wear, but, UNLIKE ring wear, these grayish areas may be possible to clean up with a minor effort and with a right cleansing solution.
- Cover shows some light yellowing on back side, apparently from aging (nothing significant).
- Cover has a small quality control (inspection) stamp on the back panel
- Cover has a minor 'bump' (dent) on the opening side (nothing significant) (VISIBLE ON BACK SIDE ONLY)
- Cover has a few tiny wrinkles along the top seam (VISIBLE ON BACK SIDE ONLY)
NO OTHER IMPERFECTIONS ON THE COVER:
- No cut-out (drill) holes.
- No cut-out corners
- No saw-marks or indents
- No writing
- No peel-off marks
- No stains
- No mold or mildew spots
