Chris Spedding: Chris Spedding (Rak)

Jonh Ingham, Sounds, 17 April 1976

'AND EVERYONE goes/To see their guitar heroes' is not the kind of lyric many people would even think of, let alone commit to posterity. But this album is littered with such agonisingly simple couplets, and that's one of this album's great strengths. Another is that the music is just as simple. There isn't a lick, cymbal snap or overdub that isn't absolutely necessary.
