"I first heard the track 'Rock Island Rocket' back in the 70's and this has been one of my favorite albums since then. I recently got it on CD and it was well worth the wait. While I am a fan of Tom Scott I am not crazy about all his releases but this is a gem and has to be possibly his finest hour. Well crafted tunes and top notch musicianship make this CD totally enjoyable, even today. John Guerin's drumming is funky, jazzy, and super tight. His solo on 'Mondo' remains a favorite. I hate drum machines with an absolute passion because drum machines are mechanical, sterile and will never have the funk and sweet soul of Mr. Guerin. For those that can't tell the difference I feel for you. And great guitarist, Robben Ford, is also on this disc. Let me not forget to give big kudos to Max Bennett on bass. What a great performance! I think bass players should check out this disc for the great lines played by Max and hear how he locks in with the drummer. Not one bad track on this disc. Simply put, this disc is a no-brainer!!"

"As the previous reviewer has described nicely, this was just how it sounded if you could hear the L.A. Express live. I have fond memories of back-to-back weekends they played at the Roxy on the Sunset Strip, and their energy was something that's still with me 30+ years later. Listening to "Rock Island Rocket" brings it all back, that's the beauty of great music. This was one of Robben Ford's first appearances on a major label record, and his solo on Guerin's "Good Evening Mr. & Mrs. America..." perfectly captures his earlier, youthful soloing style when he seemed constantly to teeter on the edge of "out". It's like listening to a thrill ride. The rhythm team of Guerin-Bennett is telekinetic; Tom Scott never had a better group. I wish they had made more, but at least this one time someone got it right."
70's Fusion at it's finest.

"While doing a search in iTunes for something else altogether I stumbled upon this gem, immediately downloaded the entire CD and proceeded to jam. The memories came flooding back as I listened to Rock Island Rocket, and drummer John Guerin's single headed toms, a sound he was almost singularly responsible for making popular. It was that distinctive dry tone that attracted me to his playing along with an awesome sense of changing direction at a moments notice. Max Bennett on bass rounded out one of the best studio rhythm sections in Los Angeles in the 70's. Robben Ford's acoustic solo on Refried is one of the best and ranks right up there with anything Larry Carlton did without 110 volts. It was a complete package with great cover art and some of the best fusion of the 70's. You won't be dissapointed."
