Album:
Two Sided Fantasy (Capitol ST 11006) 1972
CD: Akarma AK238

Thought to have been a New York bunch, they don't appear to have released any 45s for Capitol, but their album is an undiscovered gem. Kicking off with Do What I Want which featured slick rhythms and fine guitar, a high standard is set and equalled by Creepy Feeling and the Johnny Winter-influenced Everybody Knowns (Slippin), with its gruff vocals and fine guitar interplay. Dream Novel rounds off side one with some simply exquisite guitar work. Perhaps the album's finest moment is Happy, the closing track, which builds into an amazing climax. Recommended.
