It's only just begun
Recorded in their native Holland, ...It's Only Just Begun... was the first Solution album to be self-produced, though they were assisted by Phil Dunne, who had engineered their previous albums Cordon Bleu and Fully Interlocking.

Five of the seven tracks had vocals, with only "Captain Willie" and "Logic" completely instrumental. Guesting on the latter piece was Jan Akkerman from fellow Dutch band Focus.

...It's Only Just Begun... charted in Holland on 5 April 1980, reached #12 and spent 13 weeks on the chart. The title track also became a hit when released as a single. Its B-side was an instrumental version, which has not been made available on CD.

"On My Own", "Mirror", "Logic" and "It Happened in September" were included on the 2006 compilation The Ultimate Collection; "Captain Willie", "100 Words" and the title track appeared in live form.
