At the time, Carl's follow up to his splendid debut was a major disappointment for me. Although it was not true, it almost seemed like these songs were all the leftovers from the same set. In actuality an occasional riff or melody from the first album seems to have been transferred.  

The playing of the backup band is exceptional with generous portions of guitar leads and quality keyboard work.  The best songs are on side one with "Till the Dance Is Mine" and "Play Volleyball like a Man" being the best.
