The track "Going Home" is credited with personnel "Lampoon". The track had originally been planned as a Dave Lambert single before he joined Strawbs. Cousins replaced Lambert's vocals with his own and released it as a single. It is believed that the other musicians were Blue Weaver on keyboards, John Ford on bass guitar and Richard Hudson on drums. This would have been the first time that this new Strawbs line-up recorded together.


  • Dave Cousins – producer
  • Tom Allom – producer, engineer

Recorded at The Manor, Kidlington, Oxford in June 1972.
