"Business first: I am friends with the guy who reissued this, but still think this is a great record. I would not review this if I didn't like it.
Ok, Bell and Arc: This is basically a stew of very well produced rock from the early 1970s. Blues and Calafornia Country and Rock Stedy stand next to, and complement each other, perfectly.
This album reminds me of Spooky Tooth's Spooky Two, in all the right ways. The production is live and organic, allowing the music to breathe and sound fresh at every turn. "High Preist Of Memphas," if you listen, has a wonderful panio hook, great rythms, and a female backing section that sounds completely soulful. It sounds like the band has taken all their woody instruments into your living room, and they are rising to the ceiling.
Jimmy Miller may not have produced this, but his spirit lingers as the music emerges.
The album does have some ballads, but these work well, using the same production techniques.
Any fan of early 70s rock will enjoy Bell and Arc. Buy it."
