Waves - Fanzine (Clive Winstanley) comments:
Despite its catchy melody, Scullery was always an embarrassment, but that aside, this is probably the best example of a Clifford T. Ward album where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. No one song stands out from the rest and every fan will have a different personal favourite. Mine is Not Waving - Drowning and I love the bagpipes on To An Air Hostess. Clifford always said that he saw this as a very different kettle of fish to 'Home Thoughts' but it has always struck me as being very much its understudy. (1973).
Star Rating: * * * (out of 5)
A slightly diluted version of 'Home Thoughts' - though still a great album. I agree - every fan will have a different personal favourite - mine is Scullery - sorry Clive! I adore this song. Cliff wrote Scullery as a tribute to his wife Pat (see lyrics).
Marks: 9 out of 10.
