Bert Sommer was a member of one of the finest mid-60’s bands – The Lefte Banke – and Mike Brown another former member appears on this album (piano). This was his second solo album, released not long after his appearance at the Woodstock festival – his performance did not make the film, although his performance of Paul Simon’s ‘America’ was hugely appreciated and this is the only track on the album not written wholly, or in part, by Bert. The album is not a normal singer/songwriter album, as it has significantly varied genres. This variety is the USP of the album, although it may have restricted the commercial impact the album had. For me, I can listen to it time and again and get something new from it. Highly recommended.
