Overview

Not surprisingly, Clover's fourth and final album, the second of its British sojourn, had a harder rock edge than its predecessors. Clover had come over to England as a California country-rock outfit, only to land in the middle of the punk rock revolt. Its first British album, Clover (or Unavailable, as it was called in the U.K.) retained the country sound, but by the end of 1977, the band was all up-tempo rock and twin guitar leads, courtesy of Alex Call and John McFee. The music wasn't punk, exactly, but it was more aggressive. Still, Clover remained an essentially good-natured musicians' band, as the loose a cappella version of Leiber & Stoller's "Keep on Rolling" demonstrated. In another time and place, maybe that would have mattered.
