Mick is listed along with another drummer on this album (in addition to being the "Executive producer" of this project) and Bob Welch is listed alongside another bass player as playing bass on this album but unfortunately in both cases, we don't know who is playing on which song. Oddly, Lindsey is credited for the "Cover art" on this album (obviously inspired by Larry Vigon who was in favor at the time) though LB does not play on this album in any way by all accounts. Speaking of Snow, his much covered "You might need somebody" leads us off here and it may just be due to hearing this version first on my part that this one is close to me but this admittedly dated electric piano pop sound that permeates throughout this album, especially on this track, makes this a sentimental favorite version of this song for me though I must admit that I have rarely heard a bad version of this song. I guess it's just a well written tune with a great hook and I'd say this track is the obvious highlight on this platter and it makes this release worthwhile for this track alone though there are some other goodies here like "I'm comin' home (With a little bit of luck)" with it's slight Three Degrees type soul feel on the choruses, it makes for a nice smooth sounding swelling strings ballad, the closing "There's something wrong" which has louder chorus sections that have a slight discoy feel but it weaves in and out of the quiet verses and tension filled meandering vocal bridge to the effective (though unfortunately short) guitar solo at the end, "Climb up the steeple" (with it's uplifting choruses and good balladish verses works) and, though it's not great by any means, the cover of "Stand by me" here is given a slight shuffle feel which doesn't work too bad though naturally it is no match for the classic Ben E. King smash version though I could've seen this being a single possibility had this album fared better in retail shops in 1980. There's also the mid tempo "All over the world" which has more guitar than other tracks here and a disco feel, "When I lose my way" is bouncy fodder with wah wah sounding keys, "Baby, please don't go" (listed without the comma on the back cover though outnumbered 2 to 1 by the comma listing via the label & lyric sheet) is a keys led ballad with slow drums holding up the rhythm here, "Can't you hear them crying" is bass heavier though it's quiet overall sound makes it sound more like a ballad than it really is, the beat is probably more like mid tempo and "It's all up to you" is light pop piffle with chirpy electric guitars featured in this track (possibly Todd Sharp, but again, not stated in the album liner notes specifically). This is another album that I think would benefit from a CD reissue though with "You might need somebody" only managing to get to number 54 on the Hot 100 in the US in 1980 (amazingly & unfortunately), it is an unlikely candidate for release but whatever format you find it on, if you like light keys pop, you'll be fairly happy with your purchase.
