This five-track EP was penned by Barry McGuire (not the "Eve Of Destruction" man but the lead singer of New Jersey-based 288) and Joe Decker as a set of scratch tracks and each is as different as it is inspiring. These guys are exceptionally talented, their songwriting is quality and the rhythm section bites. "Home" is a tale told by the homecoming wanderer explaining that he is what he is - 'you cannot stop the wind' "Some Days" is outstanding with a capital 'O'. It has everything - a compelling rhythm, a tasty Stranglers type lead break on the keyboard, Barrie's grainy voice just adds to it as he proclaims that 'God works for the care of those who love him': with its syncopated rhythm, you will find it a foot tapper that has put a spring in your step.
