When I bought this on LP however many years ago it was, I remember being not too impressed. So I picked up the CD at the library last weekand and...I'm still not too impressed.

"Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)" is still a great catchy tune and the ending of the title track is pretty funny, as is "Sue Me, Sue You Blues", but most of the rest of them are just ok.

My main complaint is that the songs are in a key that's too high for George and he sounds like he's straining too much.  I'd give him a pass on "Try Some Buy Some", since it wasn't arranged for him, but he should have gotten someone else to sing it.  

"Who Can See It" is just awful to listen to; someone whould have told him to change the key.  Parts of it remind me of "My Love" for some reason.

Is it just me or does the piano part of "The Light That Has Lighted The World" remind anyone else of "Jealous Guy"?

"The Day The World Gets Round" and "That Is All" both have too many notes that he can barely reach.

Maybe I need to listen to "Dark Horse" before I can appreciate this album!
