4 stars Very enjoyable music from 1970 that is trippy and often Jazz flavoured. Two side long suites make up "Just A Poke" that clocks in at 33 minutes. Not a big fan of the vocals, but I love the jams.

"Baby Night" opens with lots of peaceful flute with drums, bass and vocals arriving a minute in. It turns jazzy before 3 minutes as flute continues. Tasteful guitar 7 minutes in as they continue to jam. The tempo slows down 8 1/2 minutes in as percussion then vocals come in. The tone of the guitar sounds great 12 1/2 minutes in. Flute and vocals lead the way for the last 3 minutes.

"Silly Sally" is jazzy with prominant sax. Jazz styled vocals after a minute. The tempo speeds up 3 1/2 minutes in with guitar leading the way a minute later. Bass solo 6 minutes in. The drumming 8 minutes in is very interesting to listen to. Percussion 10 minutes in until a full sound returns with sax 12 minutes in.

A low 4 stars for me but certainly recommended.
