Buried Treasure
Cole | CA. | 08/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I recently took all my old records out of the garage. It had been at least 20 years since I'd played them. So many of them were dated and laughable. When I played "My Griffin is Gone" I immediatly felt that this music was modern and beautiful. I'm a musician, and so many of todays musicians are trying to create a beautiful sound like this alblum. Hoyts' voice, the arrangements, the orchestration, and above all the connected emotional ease of this music is timeless.
People often try to label music, like "phycodelic", or whatever, but good music is just good music, no matter when it was made or where it was made or who made it. Perhaps labeling music and people is a way of not having to listen.
The song "Way before the time of towns" is remarkable lyrically and atmospherically. "Kingswood Manor" is gorgeous. I have never seen this record in stores and it seemed to have vanished. It appears now that its becoming a collectable. Those who have lived with this alblum seem to know its special qualities."

"Have been trying to fill in the gaps of my Hoyt Axton collection, and just came upon this one, which is a great treat - Hoyt at the time he was, in my opinion, doing his best work!"
A lost gem of the sixties

"Almost certainly a masterpiece. All the songs on this one are strong, both for the music and the lyrics, especially "snowblind friend" and "take it easy" and a couple more. It's just plain magic! Listen to this one on a rainy evening in the fall, you either get high from the beautiful tunes and the poetry or get down and kill yourself, one way or the other, it doesn't leave you indifferent.
Certainly worth buying!"
