Despite its derivative nature, as a first album, this is a fine effort. Sixties Aficionado Dean Mittlhauser ranks it as one of the truely legendary sixties Australian LP's. The album is a mixture of covers (strong renditions of Bo Diddley's Dancing Girl and Chuck Berry's Johnny Be Goode, but sloppy attempts at Otis Redding's My Girl Wilson Pickett's Don't Fight It and John Lennon's I Feel Fine ) and Bower originals, both sides of the first two singlesUndecided (built around a R&B Riff) / Wars Or Hands of Time (which remains one of the truely great songs of the '60's), Buried and Dead (another frenetic R&B tune) / She's My Girl plus new tunes like But One Day and Theme For A Social Climber
