Reviewing this sort of album is a bit like dissecting a meat pie after you've eaten it. I could resort to pages of pseudo intellectual wofflé, or I could do Charles Shaar Murray and wax effusively. The safest bet is to say that this album is superb, and Ain't No Saint and Make No Mistake sum the whole album up. There's some thing for everyone here. So this can't be bad at all.

Solid Air advert

24 Feb 1973
Unknown

This advert supported the release of Solid Air. At the bottom nine tour dates for March have been included. This served to reconstruct the publishing date.
The last two dates, Slough College of Technology 23rd and Euston Shaw Theatre 25th, must have been cancelled as John was touring the US at that time.
