About this release

For his 1971 second album, Labi shared arranging and producing duties with Ian Green. The collection of love songs and observational pieces demonstrate Labi’s developing talent, highlights being the hit “Thank Your Lucky Star” and songs like “Not So Long Ago” and “Bless The Telephone”. This digipak reissue includes eight bonus tracks (two b-sides make their first appearance on CD), lyrics and new booklet
notes by Alan Robinson based on a 2015 interview with Labi Siffre himself.
