4 STARS ALL MUSIC GUIDE

This lost gem from 1971 is quite an oddity. The unlikely pairing of guitarist Ernie Calabria and soul singer Barbara Massey came together to record this album of outlandish, genre-defying hybrids. The fruits of their collaboration are best described as a cross-pollination of folk, R&B and psychedelic acid soul. Consequently, this music met with baffled ears upon its initial release and quickly disappeared into obscurity. The LP includes a cool cover version of Jefferson Airplane's 'Somebody To Love'.
