"This is a beautiful little record that I listened to as a kid growing up on the beach in Florida. Leon's eccentric and offbeat vocals eventually grow on you until you become subconciously addicted. There isn't one great song on the album, but somehow it works. SMASHED is a sour sounding jazz tune that sounds great when it quickly breaks from the pop ditty "If I Were a Carpenter". Drift away with "Spanish Harlem", fast forward through "Streaker's Ball" into upbeat "Working Girl". Side two starts out slow with "Time for Love" and sets up for a Dylan (I think) tune "Hollis Brown". GOOD Choice for Leon fans. Who else listens to Leon Russell anyway?"
