"The album, which first saw the light of day in 1971, was originally released on the Buddah label. The album is a real mix of musical genres, but the playing is immense, with guitarist Baird Hersey going from strength to strength as the record progresses. Check out the fast numbers, particularly 'Patato Strut' and 'Don't,' where the Hendrix influence is immediately apparent. But Baird just keeps taking it further with superb acoustic and electric work throughout, culminating with some hypnotic sitar on 'Egg Shell.' Acoustic David Crosby keeps springing to mind. Kim Ornitz's voice, often reminiscent of Tim Hardin, is also especially worthy of mention, and that early '70s fingerprint."
