John Peel's Review

STARRY EYED & LAUGHING:     "MONEY IS NO FRIEND OF MINE"  (CBS)John Peel Singles Review Header in Sounds
However we are told to love our enemies and I do what I can, softly and without ostentation.
S. E. & L. broadcast recently on my own truly wonderful radio programme and I was moved then to comment on their excellence.
Starry Eyed and Laughing perform, it cannot be denied, in a manner best described as trad. Byrds. They do it quite extraordinarily well, injecting just enough of themselves to avoid being written off as mere copyists and in the process writing some dashed fine little numbers. This is one of their best. The playing is superb throughout, and allied to Dan Loggins' neat production, overall this is a record well worth owning.
An optimistic feel to it all, complete with an uplifting key-change. "Huzzah" they cried, falling to the ground in drunken abandon.
