For anybody not familiar with this record, it is unconditionally recommended as one of the finest albums ever. The continuing deep affection for this gem is no fluke. Its universal appeal to rock critics earns its position even though total sales have yet to exceed a million. The enigmatic Arthur Lee created the perfect hippie album, with joyous acoustic melody, strings and occasional biting guitars. The paradox was for Lee to sing a line such as ‘oh the snot has caked against my pants, it has turned into crystal’ and for it to sound absolutely right and sincere. The equally arresting ‘Alone Again Or’ features the line ‘I could be in love with almost everyone’, yet it somehow avoids sounding like a hippie cliché. The remarkable orchestral arrangements validate why this record is considered alongside Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pet Sounds as the greatest of its kind.

Tracks: Alone Again Or; A House Is Not A Motel; Andmoreagain; The Daily Planet; Old Man; The Red Telephone; Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale; Live And Let Live; The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This; Bummer In The Summer; You Set The Scene....
