5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, 14 Dec 2009
This review is from: Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus (Audio CD)
This is a blend of melody and various musical styles, recorded by a band at its peak, then fashioned by guitar wizard Randy California and (Neil Young) producer David Briggs into a seamless masterpiece. It has a wonderful freshness and seems so sure in its direction. 'You've got the world at your fingertips' begins Randy as he preludes the ecologically inspired Nature's Way, and so, it seemed, did Spirit. Other reviewers have described the songs thoroughly, and of course the album is now an all-time classic...but why on earth did Spirit split up so soon afterwards?? Randy partly blamed a lukewarm review in Rolling Stone Magazine which damaged album sales. It might also have helped if manager Lou Adler hadn't turned down the chance to play the slot just before Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock (he thought the festival would be a distraction!..)...Led Zep, incidentally, had been their support band on a US tour during which Jimmy Page borrowed the Stairway to Heaven riff off Randy, who was simply pleased to have helped...A true creative spirit who died far too early, saving his son's life in the ocean off Hawaii.
