...when th'first'n greatest incarnation o'spirit called it a day randy embarked on some sorta solo career by puttin' th'wax out...with th'earlier fraternisation with jazzy psych grooves played out by 1972 it was time to get heavy with some jimi copped guitar whammin' splattered liberally across tunes both original'n covered...toked up madness pervades all areas givin' fun lovin' cats a marvellous freakville bound stoned messaround to get lost in'n a great way to while away those vibed up afternoons o' lazy contemplation...

I love this album, and I love the later Mercury Records incarnation of Spirit. In fact I prefer a lot of the Mercury stuff to the pre-Sardonicus material. Gorgeous. So what was I going to say? Oh yeah - it's debatable if he copped some style off Jimi or Jimi copped some off him, and maybe it was a two-way street. They played together when Randy was sixteen. One of my very favorite "under-known" guitarists, along with Harvey Mandell and Mac Gayden.
