Reasons (Tempo R-7098) 1974





Improved follow-up still has a degree of mellow studio polish, especially side one’s string-softened ballads and mellow country light rock. But side two seems to shed that image in favor of a good hands-off hippie country twangin’ approach akin to that Hallelujah Joy Band album. They can rock along up-tempo as on the whimsical ‘Pharisee’ (which borrows part of Ricky Nelson’s ‘Garden Party’), or slow to a lazy stroll like ‘Bubba’s Song’. Includes a cover of Verne Bullock’s country ditty ‘Walkin’ And Talkin’. Closes with a fine six-and-a-half minute moody rural track in three parts called ‘Mountain Testimony’. (Ken Scott – The Archivist).
