The cover of this record is extremely cool! It's a nice LP of reasonably straightforward mid-60s easy listening with a few twists.

Winchester Cathedral is as you would expect. ‘Detroit City’ is quite cool - funky with a twangy guitar. Nothing else really grabbed me until ‘Yeh yeh’ (an ok version, but the girly vocal bits are done on violins and trumpets, so nothing special really). The version of ‘these boots are made for walking’ is familiar from the Dig It compilation from a few years ago. It’s silly, but fun.

The musicians are all the usual suspects, including Jim Sullivan, John Paul Jones, Nicky Hopkins and Alan Parker.
