This one presumably was bought in 'Our Price Records' in Golders Green, which had become my usual record shop. I bought the album because I had been impressed by the previous offering by Spirit, "From the time zone - spirit of 76", which confusingly had been released in 1975. I received this double album in my guise as record reviewer for the university magazine, but by this time, I was no longer writing for them.
Anyway - I was sufficiently moved to buy the followup album. In retrospect, I wish I hadn't. I don't have this on cd and haven't heard the songs since 1978.
