3 stars It happened in 1971

This single was Curved Air's first and the a-side - It Happened Today - was taken from their debut full-length album Air- conditioning which was released the previous year. This well-known track has since gone on to become a real classic and a mainstay in the band's live repertoire till the present day. It is however the single's b-side, What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up?, that carries the real interest here since it was not included on any of the band's albums. This catchy, Gentle Giant-like song driven by violin and keyboards is a worthy companion to It Happened Today and is of the same high quality as the songs that made it onto Air-conditioning. Any fan of Curved Air's first four albums will definitely enjoy this strong non-album b-side.

I've seen versions of this single (for example as listed on the band's official website) containing a third track not listed above, namely Vivaldi. I don't personally own a copy of it and I do not know if the single existed in several different versions or not.

Like the non-album a-side single Sarah's Concern, What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up? is a good song that is a good addition to any Curved Air collection.
