CD Reviews

Great 70's import
Paul J. Sorensen | Oregon City, OR United States | 06/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album has a sound typical of import music of the era. "Don't Make Me Cry" features a nice, driving bass line into
a spacey flute conclusion. (Lots of flute work on the album). "You Make My Jelly Roll" is a classic blues sound. This, and other songs on the album, feature an electronic saxaphone. Sounds like a miked sax, not a Kenny G sound at all. "Dreams" is a another great song. It's a slow, building song, into a solid guitar refrain. One of my favorite import albums of the 70's."
Important improvement of proto-prog blues,towards progmusic
Lethe | Milan, Italy | 02/22/2003
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This "progressive blues" - in the vein of Colosseum - is an important step closer to the 70's classic prog style and actually is equal to a 3 stars and 1/2 rate ... a bit late, regarding of its issue (1971),nevertheless the utilisation of an acoustic piano and a particular guitar mood as well,sometimes Zeppelinesque, in other moments closer to the canterburian sound of guitarists such as Dave Stewart by Khan or Steve Hilage by Gong, make this album quite memorable. Well It's characterized by the same spirit, even though honestly the sound is completely different. In fact there are not any particular experimentations, as They had not the purpose to be canterburian, but the songwriting was inspiring, despite of being not so insightful. Nevermind, the output is good and this l.p. could be put inside the collection of the most interesting and less busy proto-prog works !! Moreover you can find cool organ riffs and a good range of odd instruments such as vibraphones, flutes, sax and so on.Some songs are lenghty and complex, being influenced also by some jazz stuff.As its sound and arrangement are typical of the transition period between the 60's and the 70's, within the proto-prog field, this album is not a masterpiece,but it is worth checking out!!"
