3 stars Reading some rather positive reviews of this album left me somewhat puzzled. I am old enough and with a healthy interest in music, yet I could not recall having heard of this band. I left no stone unturned till I was able to hear this piece. Hmmm, maybe not for the first time after all, but perhaps it just didn't resonate with me back then - and still doesn't.

There is no doubt that this is well-intended work, albeit rather amateurish, perhaps even naive by what sounds like a bunch of hippies. Now, don't get me wrong, I am not about to mock hippies here as I consider myself as a die-hard specimen of those. But this release leaves me rather underwhelmed. The music is mediocre - if at all - lacking any grunt and would suit a small-town Country Fair more than a record contract. Considering that 1972 saw the release of fantastic works, in comparison, this just doesn't stack up and should have remained in the vaults.

Barely scraping in at 3 and that with a healthy dose of goodwill.
