If you're here and you know the album then you'll know why, despite the bombastic singing, the trite lyrics and derivative instrumental work-outs, you love it... the unbelievably effective 17 minutes of its title cut that, at the time and over 30 years later, somehow just "works", brilliantly. If you're here and you don't, buy it for this track alone and revel in some of the best and most evocative music from the late 60's "West Coast" scene. And, in amongst it all, check out the drum solo. "De rigour" for its time but clever because it's not at all "flashy" and, in fact, not particularly good technically, but because it sits there as an essential element in building the "atmosphere" on which the success of the track relies. Not your usual "give the guy his three minute spot to show what he can do" but rather, by design or chance, an extremely rare example of how to make a drum solo an integral & welcome part of a piece of quite stunning rock music.
