"An album that's just about as home-made a you can get. The original LP, although recorded for the Jubilee label, never saw the light of day and when the album did finally appear, it was as a private pressing limited to a paltry 100 copies with no record labels and a paste-on cover! The band, which was formed by guitarist Bruce Scofield in 1969, gigged around the New York and New Jersey areas off and on for a couple of years. Their almost transcendental approach to music won them many (mostly male!) devotees, and their bizarre stage show (typically,involving vocalist Ray Bartkowech littering the stage with mandolins, percussion instruments, teddy bears and Raggedy Ann dolls!) became somewhat of a novelty. When Jubilee finally got them into the studio, the band laid down a more conventional and more accessible album reminiscent of the sound of Little Feat and early '70s Grateful Dead and the twelve self-penned guitar-led tracks, all of which are brilliantly played, tend to get pretty heavy at times."
