"The members of Kansas City Jammers (described elsewhere as 'struggling between getting good grades and scoring good drugs') first began performing together in 1969, while students at Ohio Wesleyan University. Colorful though that description may be, it hardly tells the tale, as the band members were all accomplished musicians and songwriters. The end result: excellent music! The band's self-released Got Good (if you get it) LP, recorded between 1969 and 1971, and given the deluxe master-tape reissue treatment here, is a mixture of up-tempo heavy guitar rockers and well-written dreamy acid-folk tracks: in other words, some folk, some folk-rock, a hard-edged bluesy cut with heavy guitar ('Messiah') that sounds like Fat (on RCA), and two live songs ('Midnight Watch' and 'Driver') with filthy, snarling guitar that sound like they slipped off side two of the Oliver Klaus album."
