5 seems a bit generous

"Jo Jo Gunne had many things going for them, but there were many other bands of similar sound that made it hard for them to make a name. Only one radio semi-hit (Run Run Run) didn't much help. And though they produced 4 relatively solid LPs ina fairly short time, they never made much of a dent. I always thought side one of this with side one of Bite Down hard would have made a classic: those are five tasty songs. Silly, simple, sure, but fun and energetic....Remember the LP? This is a faithful transfer, though without any extras, that sounds as good as it did then. Wondering where to begin with Jo Jo Gunne? This is a fine place. These guys could play, and Jay Ferguson really was a excellent singer, even when his material wasn't much to work with."

"Rising from the ashes of SPIRIT were JAY FERGUSON and MARK ANDES. Joined by Mark's brother, MATT ANDES, on guitar, and Texas drummer, CURLY SMITH, JO JO GUNNE was born. From the opening drum beat of RUN RUN RUN to the keyboard driven SHAKE THAT FAT to the story of a touring rock and roll band in 99 DAYS, JO JO GUNNE showed the rest of America that the West Coast could rock and roll. MATT ANDES is an excellent guitarist matched with the masterful keyboards of JAY FERGUSON and the bass and drums of MARK ANDES and CURLY SMITH make JO JO GUNNE one of America's best bands."
Head banging music from the early 70's...

"This was what we listened to when it was friday after work and a group of buddys and myself would kick back and, well.. "relax" from the week behind us. It was sooo tooo bad that JoJo Gunne didnt quite click with the rock radio stations at the time. Some airplay though not much.. There was another party band simular in sound that was coming up at the same time called Bachman Turner Overdrive. They sort of stole the show. But damn!!!.. Jay Ferguson and the boys could hammer a tune out and make it feel good. Disco was coming up, the punk rock music was wearing us out and we just wanted to sit back and get down with some straight forward rock. Not overproduced and re-re-remixed and mastered. You can actually count all the instruments on one hand. JoJo Gunne was the answer in 1973. It still is now. A new re-union album with the original band is in the works for release this year. Can't wait.."
