The second If album came out within the same year as the first, & continues in the same distinctive jazz-rock vein the b& worked on its debut. The playing is excellent, with the sax & flute work of Dave Quincy & Dick Morrissey carrying the group's sound to a level unmatched by other, better known contemporaries like Chicago & Blood, Sweat & Tears. J. W. Hodkinson's unique vocals continue to sail through the music, while Terry Smith employs a deeper, grittier guitar tone than he used on the first LP.
The material here is not as interesting as on the earlier release, but the soloists have plenty of space to stretch out & strut their stuff over John Mealing's organ/electric piano bed of chord changes. Jim Richardson lays down some inventive basslines & drummer Dennis Elliott keeps the b& on track through various rhythmic twists & turns.
