"Here's another little musical gem, this time featuring the indisputable talents of guitarist and singer/songwriter Steve Ono and his chums in Folly's Pool. Folly's Pool is another of the literally hundreds of private pressings which appeared in 1977 on the specialist label, Century Records, although it must be said that there can't be many other bands on the label that attain this level of recording quality and impressive musicianship. Under the stewardship of Fresno-born Ono, the band takes us on a tour de force of acoustic-based rural rock with folk, prog and country influences often to the background. At times Folly's Pool sounds like they're trying to be The Eagles or Loggins & Messina, but in many ways this does the band a disservice as they have successfully created an individual approach to their music which often turns the ordinary into the exceptional (the cunning transformation from folk to prog of 'Jig In A' is worth the price of admission alone) and the high standard of everything the band plays (the stunning electric guitar solos are particularly fine) makes this album one to play and savour."
