"Frankly, I love Noel Redding's bass and guitar playing. The first time I saw him was with the JHE in 1967. He played a chord that moved all the seats in the front row of the Ambassador Theater in D.C. Noel and Mitch were given far to little credit for the success of the JHE and for that matter Jimi's playing. I had all of Noels LPs, Road, Fat Mattress, and bought his book when I lived in the UK back in 1991. The book was outstanding and provided interesting insight into what really happened in JHE. Anyway, this LP is pretty good but clearly would have benefited from better production values. You can hear bits of his spark but not nearly enough. I really wish Noel would team-up with some good inovative players and do a serious recording. Bottom line for me is I want the guy to live a good life so I'll buy anything he sells.. he gave me 3 of the best years of music in my life."
NOEL GAVE IT HIS BEST SHOT ON THIS CD!

"Well, poor ol' Noel Redding (remember him?, Jimi Hendrix's former Experience bassist) finally has an official U.S. CD release
through Griffin Music for his long lost third solo effort. According to the '94 liner notes by former member Dave Clarke, this
was to be the second Clonakilty Cowboys album for RCA but was shelved due to legal squabbles. There is some good music
on this 13 tune CD, and it's a shame it did not appear when it should have back in the mid '70s. If this release had seen it's
day in the mid '70s, it surely would have raised the fading Noel's chance in the spotlight. I mean, this guy had his share of hard
luck at the time and these guys were promising. Anyway, here it is and your guess is as good as mine as to who is doing the
guitar & bass work. Whoever it is they're good. The material ranges from some light Jazz, to Ballads, to cool Rock 'N' Roll.
This is a must for any Redding fan or collector of Hendrix related material. I mean this guy played on the most important
material Hendrix ever cut! Correct?"
