4 stars This is what we would call Progressive Blues Rock! Not many bands were brave enough to experiment with both blues rock and what we would later come to know as progressive rock! Among these were Bakerloo, Ten Years After, Steamhammer, and Killing Floor.

I think, this album is a true beauty. First time I listened to it, I was absolutely stunned by emotion and beauty of "This Worried Feeling". Clem Clempson's playing is top notch here and is probably his first shine and the reason why he would become such a sought after musician in later years. The rhythm section does a great job here as well. With a jazzy influence, they very proficiently support the overall vibe given by Clem Clempson. "Son of Moonshine" is the proggiest track on the album, a very enjoyable listening expirience with some serious guitar playing.

Definitely not a prog album, less prog than most proto-prog, in fact. However, this still gets four stars for its strong entertainment value and pure emotion that comes through.
