I have never understood the neglect that greeted this late Sixties masterpiece, one of my very favorites since it first came out. Maybe they had trouble duplicating the sound in concert (with the loss of Jerry Corbitt they were down to a trio, and some of the tracks here include a very rocking full orchestra.) Maybe the sound that the band and producer Charles E. Daniels (yes, ole Charlie Daniels!) laid down was just too complex for the average listener. There's rock, jazz, blues, bossa nova, C&W...sometimes all in the same long cut! Just give it a try. Years ago, I played it while a musician friend was present and he stood there with his jaw dropped until he exclaimed, "Who IS that!?" It's the Youngbloods. Check it out.
