Looser and more ragged than their UNI lp, but also more energetic.  The group would re-record "Help Me", "Swannoa Tunnel", and "Guitar Song" (which they would re-title "Love So Strong")for For Sale, but the best moments here are the Bacchanalia ode "Sloppy Drunk", and a fine version of "Killing Floor".  The group gets points for adventurousness with a crosseyed version of "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music.  It's too bad that this album's so hard to find
