Theresa's Blues is a hell of a track. Larry Coryell's going completely nuts in the middle section, but Steve pulls a giant hidden ace from his sleeve by spending the last few minutes with the band running his sax through way, way too much overdrive, causing it to feedback. LOUDLY. For a considerable length of time. It's damn near Borbetomagus-y.

Ooh Baby is less amazing but still very good. The rest is a bit inconsequential and/or friendly. Still, twenty four and a half minutes of awesome on a thirty four and a half minute long album is pretty damn solid.
