I thought the whole of disc 2 was anemic. As far as disc 1....LET EM IN, was the big radio hit. It's a low energy near-novelty number that features ( Paul?) some whistling during the outro. Only, it comes over like all outro, as well as a redux of UNCLE ALBERT/HANDS ACROSS THE WATER, in the lyrics. When the song finally comes to an end, it is a relief. BEWARE MY LOVE improved from the version on the second disc, which plays like a demo ( that features Z eppelin drummer John Bonham), there. Disc 1's version features stellar backing vocals, from lead-wife LInda. She also does the excellent photography included in the package. Jimmy Mcculloch does WINO JUNKIE, which reprises the theme of MEDICINE JAR, from an earlier album. And COOK OF THE HOUSE is a novelty number, complete with the sound of well-recorded sizzling bacon. It went out as a B-side, featuring the cook of the house, on lead vocals.
