Don Kretmar (bass, vocals)

Tommy Flanders was long gone. Al Kooper and Steve Katz left to start Blood, Sweat and Tears leaving the band with out it's three best vocalists. What's left is great playing, good material and mediocre if not awful vocals.

The title track "Lazarus" is the highlight(it's actually sung fairly well). Danny Kalb manages to supply some good guitar on several other tracks to at least make an interesting listen.
