In response to Cyrille Regis, BBC 2 repeat the Adrian Chiles documentary, Whites v Blacks, How Football Changed A Nation, unbelievable true story, worth watching

Stoke City condemned 2 relegation. Who is the new manager? Paul Lambert.

Agreed Reyno about Clyde Best, further back is the story of Walter Tull which is quite heartbreaking, links to Northampton and lived in Rushden.

Big loss is Cyrille, only short time at Wolves, but I was at the Peterborough game where he scored the last minute winner, Cyrille and Laurie C, what a team.

I think many people forget guys like West Ham's Clyde Best whenever the subject of the impact of black footballers in the English game crops up. He was just as good as the West Brom trio years b4

Cyrille was part of the ground breaking so called 'three degrees' who did so much to break down racial barriers in Football back in the late 70's.R.I.P

The album title just smacks off AOR doesn't it? Apart from their huge melodramatic hit 'They Shoot Horses, Don't They?', I didn't know a lot else about this mostly 70's Welsh outfit. But AOR unfortunately, it definitely isn't. This is the bands third album after their 1976 debut 'Downtown Tonight' and 1977's 'Weekend Rendezvous'. The band were signed to Chrysalis Records, and delivered a sound somewhere between early Nazareth, Sutherland Brothers and Quiver, plus some boogie flavours from Status Quo and Smokie.

The Songs
It's all very mild though, and in todays's pigeon-holing, this could be described as softish classic rock. Most of the material is very tame (too tame actually), but when they funk it up a bit, as on 'Takin' On The World' and 'When I'm Walkin' Home', they sound fairly decent. However, the rest of it is just too sleep-inducing. They obviously hadn't invented Xanax back then?

In Summary
This would be the last Racing Cars album during their formative period. Gareth Mortimer (a.k.a Morty) would go own to form his own version of the band during 1981 (Morty And The Racing Cars), the resulting album being 'Love Blind'. The band did reform for 2000's 'Bolt From The Blue', and a few occasional guest appearances during the Noughties. I don't believe this album has been officially released on CD yet, the only that has was 'Downtown Tonight' which is on the Cherry Red roster.

Very pub rock sound. They did a tour or two with Manfred Mann.
