Susan Jacks' voice became highly recognizable when "Which Way You Goin' Billy" climbed the charts in 1970, and her husband hit number one in 1974 after they divorced with a remake of a song once performed by the Kingston Trio, "Seasons in the Sun." Poppy Seeds from the Poppy Family is an album of lightweight pop music from happier times, and has its moments. Of the 12 tunes here, half are written by Terry Jacks, and though the outside material consists of outstanding choices, this album's best moments are when Susan Jacks interprets husband/producer Terry's compositions. "I'll See You There" is interesting pop, somewhat innovative for the day, and if the group hadn't been known for the 1970 hit which was borderline bubblegum, "I'll See You There" would've been a candidate for FM airplay. "I Was Wondering" is a very strong Terry Jacks ballad and "Tryin'" is perhaps the best performance on the album, Susan Jacks showing herself to be very comfortable with country music.
