The 1973 album by this New Zealand group was very much a folk-rocky relic of the late hippie era.
The briskly strummed guitars, ebullient vocal harmonies, and relentlessly sunny lyrical glow of some cuts are like those of guys who�ve taken Traffic�s �You Can All Join In� as their manifesto. Because it�s all done without a pinch of irony, it�ll drive those with a limited taste for feel-good rock up the wall and out the door. If you do enjoy gung ho folk-rock with a can-do rural flavor, though, it�s well executed, but derivative. There are echoes of not only Traffic at their most pastoral, but also Crosby, Stills & Nash�s harmonizing on songs like �Wooden Ships,� as well as (less expectedly) some of the cartwheeling constructions of Yes � a band that did have some folk-rock influences, though those haven�t been widely acknowledged. Medieval melodic influences also pop up, as do, perhaps, the very lightest shades of the folkiest moments
of the late-�60s Beatles.
