Another one album wonder that never seems to get much recognition... It was to be the Yardbird's legendary vocalist Keith Reif's swan song. A hard to find record and it's a shame. Here a quintet of superstars lay down a prog rock/stoner jam that was way ahead of their time. The band unquestionably yielded some inspired songwriting, and even memorable improvisational moments within driving opener "Buzzard," the gently whimsical post-psych ballad "Silver Tightrope," and the 11-minute, prog rock smorgasbord of "Basking in the White of the Midnight Sun" It's worthy to be in any collection.
