CD reissue. This innovative band continued, with this recording, to be one of the great aural joys of their era. Opener 'Go Down Gamblin' is a fierce blues rocker-full of explosive horn charts with David Clayton-Thomas' melodic vocals. Ex-bandleader Al Kooper contributed one track, 'John the Baptist' to the album. This particular album accentuates how a band that enjoyed such tremendous success, could be so unaffected as to turn out a mature and well-constructed album of songs that are similar but vastly different from their previous albums. Dixieland Rock and the introspective piano, trumpet collaboration of Lew Soloff and Fred Lipsius. It is a shame that this band has become one of the best kept secret joys in music.
