Album Review

For anyone who has wondered what all the fuss was about, or for anyone who actually remembers, this collection of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Terry Callier's Cadet sides from three early-'70s albums — Occasional Rain (1972), What Color Is Love (1973), and I Just Can't Help Myself (1975) — is welcome and necessary.

Early Kenny Rankin and Arthur Adams get at some of it, but Callier is really in a class by himself. All one needs to do is check out the opening cut, "Dancing Girl," to know why.
