The first posthumous release from Spirit following the drowning death of its leader, Randy California, in 1997, Cosmic Smile is anything but a collection of leftovers. Though California regularly included original Spirit drummer Ed Cassidy in the group's performances and recordings, and encouraged the occasional appearance of former band members, Spirit was, in essence, his flag of convenience from the mid-'70s on. These studio tracks, recorded between 1990 and 1995, sometimes feature California alone, playing all instruments. They are all new, previously unreleased compositions from what is said to be an extensive archive. That's no surprise, since California and Spirit had trouble getting their material out through the major record labels after the group's first blush of success.
