Ace: Five-a-Side [ABC, 1975]
The single, "How Long," is welcomed by some desperate souls as a breakthrough for England's pub rock movement. Bet if John David Souther lived in England he'd play pubs too. Super catchy, but even more banal than that term used as a superlative ordinarily implies, sung and played with a mildness infuriating in musicians of such skill but totally appropriate to lyricists of such underweening triviality.
