Review: Smoking set from the original line-up! This disc made the rounds as a bootleg for years and was recently released commercially. The recording is stellar. Interestingly, Gregg plays piano instead of organ on 4 & 5
If You Like: no one compares to this band, but ifyou kike Lynard Skynard, Elvin Bishop, Derek & the Dominoes, or Butterfield Blues Band, you’ll love this.
