Essential reissue of the classic third album by pastoral British folk rockers Unicorn produced by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd. Originally released in 1976, it was their first for EMI's Harvest label in the UK and second for Capitol in the US. The album combines impassioned 1970s West Coast vibes with Beatlesque melodies and tight performances. Indeed, the album, while remaining sonically consistent, enjoys shifting effortlessly between gritty country rockers like the Lindsey Buckingham sounding "He's Got Pride" and "In The Mood", to the funky "Bullseye Bill" and the gentle title track which is not unlike Big Star at their finest. While Unicorn were sadly unsuccessful in turning the proto-powerpop "Disco Dancer" into a major hit, the album track "No Way Out Of Here" went on to be the key track on David Gilmour's debut album. It's a must-have album for any serious music fan. Includes 12-page booklet with liner notes, lyrics and rare photos.
