2 stars I came round to this album after going through the Larry Coryell discography. Though labeled as jazz-rock album, the jazz part of the description is questionable. I would describe it is an upbeat rock album with traces of psychedelia supported by guitar and flute. Forays into jazz are heard when listening to the muscular saxophone lines. Coryell keeps a surprisingly low profile when playing and the future potential is yet to be displayed. Some tracks have a grooving/bluesy character ("LBOD") or have an accessible melody ("Girl of the mountain"). Definitely interesting to listen to it for historical reasons, this album pales in the contemporary world of fusion and jazz and it not really distinguishable on its own.
