Personal Review

I can vividly remember buying Time Honoured Ghosts. It was in the days when I automatically bought any BJH album as soon as it came out.

I remember taking it home and being extremely disappointing.

Here was my favourite band churning out what I felt were rather dull middle of the road rock songs with none of the old sparkle.

Now re-visiting all th albums one by one, Time Honoured Ghosts has certainly improved with age.

There are some pretty songs here and Woolly's keyboard playing
