but with that song replaced on the US release by "Strange Kind of Woman" it's quite solid and contains some of my favorite tracks.
Mine didn't have that track. The Mule was kinda interesting with the drum beat. The track Fireball was heavy, but not in league with tracks like Burn or Highway Star.

Anyone's daughter? what was that song doing there.
Same sort of thing the Stones' "The Girl with the Faraway Eyes" was doing on Some Girls, or any number of other country-flavored songs were doing on albums by other British bands (several featuring English country-picker Albert Lee.) Elvis, Muddy Waters and Chuck Berry weren't the only things these guys listened to coming up. "Anyone's Daughter" is funnier than most, though.

For the rest of Fireball, "No, No, No", "Fools" and "No One Came" are favorites. The title track isn't a strong example of songwriting, really, but they play the out of it.

skin flakes, and no one would nap on them for fear of catching salmonella."
