"1968 album from the Baltimore psych group. Exact repro, manufactured by Rhino. The opener Poor Old Man is an inspired leadoff track that features a strong west coast influence, both Love & The Doors immediately come to mind, it sports a killer bass riff along with loose, John Densmore style percussion and a myriad of psychedelic effects, about midway in, the whole piece breaks down and singer Jack Bryant does this totally off the wall jazz type scat vocal that completely derails the song, luckily it doesnt last long as the group leap back into the opening riff and its back to the races. A Horn Playing On My Thin Wall is next and it is a dead ringer for Da Capo era Love (both Orange Skies & Que Vida), this track becomes better as it rolls along, it ends with a rush of great harmony vocals. Something You Can Hide In is full tilt psychedelia that features every psychedelic trick in the book with fabulous results, this number reminds me a great deal of Loves underrated Four Sail album." -Head Heritage
