Given the folky-sounding band name, the mellow-looking album cover, and an almost complete lack of notoriety, I was pretty surprised by their sound. This is straight-ahead rock blues, some of it pretty darn good. This Bay Area trio (Gary Wagner - vocals/guitar/keyboards/songwriter; John Haden - bass; Steve Adams - drums) doesn't have a terribly unique sound, so it's not a shock that they didn't stand out in the heady days of rock n' roll in 1970. But they're definitely solid, with an appealing sound that's reminiscent of early Rory Gallagher (with less spectacular guitar but slightly better vocals), bluesy Jimi Hendrix (at his most restrained), and the soulfulness if not the ebulliance of the Spencer Davis Group. In my mind, Wagner is better on the slower, darker songs like "My Eyes Are Getting Heavy" and "How Can You Win" where that soulful quality comes through (both vocally and instrumentally); the boogie blues tracks (e.g. "Lucanna", "Skid Row Runner"), which make up about half the album, show his weakness as a vocalist. I actually found those tracks to be quite forgettable - many, many other bands do that style much better. There are really four standouts here: "My Eyes Are Getting Heavy", "Silver Ghost", "We're All Gonna Burn Together" and "How Can You Win". Collectors might want the original vinyl, but if you're just looking for good, obscure rock, grab that handful of songs on MP3.
