Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
Underrated gem from the 70s...but no way am I paying over $2

"I remember picking up this album in Argus Tapes & Records (Wichita's local music/head shop chain) after hearing them play "Fifty-Four". I liked it and figured that any band laying down a track that good had to have more where that came from. I wasn't far off. But it's not like this was "Romantic Warrior" or "Heavy Weather". About half the tracks are forgettable, but the ones that are good are quite good -- and these are primarily the instrumental cuts. In addition to "Fifty-Four" the workout tunes are "A Lotta Colada" and the standout "On the Wing" -- I'd pay $20 just for that tune alone. Unfortunately the going price on Amazon for this CD seems to be $40. Sorry guys. I understand the concept of supply and demand. But I simply can't see my way to that scenario. Maybe this one will get re-re-released on CD for a more civil price.
Incidentally, if you know enough about Sea Level to be dangerous you probably have read that some of these guys played with the Allman Brothers band. But don't pick up this CD expecting to hear that sound... you'll be disappointed."
