CD Reviews

Overlooked Gem
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jake Jacobs (sometimes guitarist with NRBQ) and a country-blues/folk singer at a great moment put together this fine album. It has momentum, humor, and coherence; as a single work it holds together like the Beatles White Album, Pet Sounds, or Tommy.It's not a hard rocker, but almost a roots rocker; Slow Down Little Jaguar and Big Boy Pete show this side of their work; I am the Light is a Rev. Gary Davis number, in an excellent interpretation.I wore out two copies of this on vinyl before buying the CD -- in this overpriced import version -- and I don't regret it."
Unsung masterpiece

"This incomprehensibly overlooked album ranks with the best pop music of any decade, and epitomizes the eclectic-but-rootsy musical spirit of the 60's as well or better than any of the top folk-blues-rock groups of the era. The songwriting is very strong, and the covers of songs by Chuck Berry, Rev. Gary Davis, etc. equal or exceed the orginals. Jake is a very hot lead & rhythm player, and Bunky posseses a great, warm voice. Buy it--it's well worth the price! (PS: Their eponymous 1st LP didn't reach these heights.)"
