"Originally released on the infamous Tiger Lily label in 1976, the self-titled album by the melodic country-rock outfit Dakota is one of the most charming of '70s West Coast style albums, and finally receives a digital reissue here... Wait a second, 'infamous' Tiger Lily label? Well, so they say, Tiger Lily was a tax scam label run by the head of Roulette, Morris Levy. Whatever the rumour, the label had taste, the Stonewall album for example, plus of course this hitherto overlooked gem. Reflective songs dominate, each one short and bittersweet. There's a hint of Neil Young, particularly in the vocals, but these guys can really play too. Whether tugging at the ol' heartstrings or setting those toes a-tapping, Dakota will take you on a West Coast ride worth remembering, and you can almost smell the jasmine in the air! "
