The four songs Donna , Rubber Bullets , The Wall Street Shuffle and The Dean and I were released as singles, all of which reached the top ten of the UK charts, including Rubber Bullets , which came in at number one. Some titles were also successful in the Flemish and Dutch charts.
The subsequent title Fresh Air for My Mama was a rework of You Didn't Like It Because You Didn't Think of It , the B-side of Neanderthal Man , which in turn was an international hit by the band under their former name Hotlegs .
The album usually got positive reviews.
"[...] Some might criticize the group for being too self-satisfied with their own intelligence, but there is no denying the true craftsmanship and humor on their 1973 debut."
