Group: Charles Lloyd - Michael Cohen - Ken Jenkins - Zitro - Ned Doheny - Bob Jekins

A blend of a number of pop/rock/avant grade influences on side one followed by a long freeform jazz piece on side two that eventually slides back into the conceptualism that dominates the majority of project, as heard in the sample above, using a spacey vocal passage to help connect elements.

From Billboard - September 12, 1970: Charles Lloyd first came into sight as a jazzman with the Cannonball Adderley group, then he formed his own quartet still playing jazz and attracted the attention of the Filmore jazz circuit who dug into his avant grade happenings. Now Lloyd has switched into the rock energy and come up with a rock album that contains his own music and lyrics. Good etherial product, part jazz, a lot of rock and much heavy.
