ReactionEdit

Stephen Holden, in his November 7, 1974, review of the Late for the Sky album, called the song "a crisp little rock song." Discussing the song in terms of the narrative progression of the album, Holden said the song celebrated "Browne's newfound domestic stability."[4]

PersonnelEdit

Professional jug band musician Fritz Richmond is credited with playing jug on the track.[5]
