Really loud white-boy blues!
Dick Destiny (crypt@sun.soci.niu.ed | southern California | 11/22/1998
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Not only do you disclose your age when confessing to liking "Tightly Knit," you're making a statement. You see, it's become so politically incorrect to admit to being a fan of heavy, early-Seventies British white-boy blues, it's almost worse than declaring you admire those who pick their noses on TV. So, dare to be a boor. You'll enjoy this CBB recording if you appreciate the band's sound when it was more guitar heavy than sax funk and jazz anarchy. "Tightly Knit" is man's music. So don't tell the wife you ordered this. Hide it when it arrives in a brown paper wrapper. And make sure she's outta the room when you play "Shoot Her If She Runs" and the nine minutes of "St. Michael's Blues" -- really loud crunching guitar and a singer bellerin' in pain over his lady whose been lettin' another man raid his box of "special colored socks" in the bedroom. --Dick Destiny"
It's About Time They Re-released this Album!

"This is CBB's best work. St. Michael's Blues is one of my favorite blues songs of all time. This is one diverse group. They dont make 'em like CBB anymore."
Lives up to the name!(at least for me!)

"After hearing this in 75 I had to special order the album (that's right record album)! It is definitely their best album and one of a handfull of rock albums I think transend time. The rythmic interplay of the Sax with the other istruments on songs like Who Killed McSwiggin sounds like what Crimson could have done without all the experimentation. When I listen to this disc it doesn't bring back memories of any particular time or place, only the music. The music on this disc will stay with you. Enjoy it!"
