Y ou’d think I’d spend my time talking about the A side, but I’m something of a crank. So B it (amen). “Babes In The Wood” might be all the reason I need to slip SMB alongside prog giants like Jethro Tull and Traffic. It’s an instrumental that fits nicely in the prog folk folder, nothing to agitate your brain but showing some affinity for the pixie-dancin’ population. An AMG reviewer referred to this as “Renaissance Faire whimsy,” which is actually pretty clever (as opposed to, I dunno, didactic). Oh yeah, and “Jet Airliner” kicks tail. Because a plane has a tail and I have no right to make fun of other critics. There's more on this at Songfacts too.
