"I am a late commer as a Randy California/Spirit fan. I mainly know Randy's music from the posthumous albums, and also "The 12 Dreams". I listened to "12 Dreams" a lot when it first came out. I have been listening to it, and three or four Randy California posthumous albums lately. I think I can only recomend "Spirit od 76" for those die-hard Spirit fans who want to know where Randy, and the band was at in 1976. For me overall the album was meandering, and very dated. There were only a couple bright spots in the 2 disc album. I listened to it twice, and then pitched the album in the trash. I knew I would never listen to it again. Over-all a disappointing experience. To me, only of value to see how Randy, and the band had progressed. I can highly recommend "Cosmic Smile", "Sea Dreams", and even "Son of America". But not this album. - btk"
