An "American" Classic Finally Released in US
09/10/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Wait to buy this CD. In late October, Collectors' Choice is releasing it (via their web site) in the US as a two-fer, combining it with American Flyer's second album, Spirit of a Woman. The disc will list for under $20, less than a fourth the cost of purchasing the two Japanese imports."
Awesome album
Tom T | San Francisco, Ca | 03/29/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Great album, produced by George Martin, all solid tracks. My favorite track "m" written and performed by Steve Katz of BS&T fame, is a masterpiece. Back in '57 is also a strong Katz effort."
This Album Got Me Through the 70's
Douglas Hyden | Tallahassee, Florida | 08/14/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Every track is a standout. I remember the long summer of 1977 slow dancing with my girlfriend 'til past midnight to the dreamy strains of this album. Very smooth and lyrical. The words go straight to your heart. "Queen of All My Days" and "Back in '57" are chilling. This album, an import, is well worth the price.
Note: this band was a short-lived stepchild to Pure Prairie League, so expect the same clean vocals and expert acoustic instrumentation. The band is less country and more jazzy, though."
