iTunes Review

This underestimated 1977 gem from Dave Mason’s Columbia Records era fluctuates between subtle heart tugs and knockout songsmithing, and it sometimes recalls his days in Traffic. Tinkling pianos, strings, acoustic guitars, and gently melancholic lyrics abound. “Let It Go, Let It Flow” and “We Just Disagree” (Mason’s biggest hit, written by his guitarist Jim Krueger) are classic ’70s radio rock poppers: perfectly executed, arranged and produced, and inescapable. The faraway sax, ripping organ, and dramatic strings make “Spend Your Life with Me” the true centerpiece here, while “Takin’ the Time to Find” rocks a bit of Doobie Brothers white-boy funk. “So High (Rock Me Baby and Roll Me Away)” kills with an indisputably catchy chorus, and “Then It’s Alright” offers up guitar hooks, harmonies, and a bit of social protest (like an outtake from Traffic’s Mr. Fantasy). “Seasons,” “Mystic Traveler” (dig the theremin), and “What Do We Got Here” (dig the flute) are sweet amalgams of ’60s California canyon groove and mid-'70s balladry, two musical subgenres that Mason completely mastered.

Customer Reviews

A lost Great!

I cannot believe that there was only one review of this recording. Its not his very best, but there are some great cuts and some great back up players on all Dave's albums. He is a classic 70's rocker - under appreciated to be sure...

Some Fine 70's Soft Rock

I wouldn't classify Let It Flow as a classic album, but it comes darn close. There are many quality tracks here, most of which are totally underappreciated. Going beyond the hits (We Just Disagree, So High, and Let It Go, Let It Flow) other fine songs include "Spend Your Life With Me", "Then It's Alright" and "Seasons". There are clearly hints of the presence of musical stylings of other acts that were popular at the time, including The Doobie Brothers, Chicago and Santana. While they certainly add to the depth of the music, the fact that he could not truly claim a certain style as his own may have ultimately been a reason that Dave Mason never really caught the imagination of the radio listening public.

Let Yourself Go

This album is pretty good, I love "We Just Disagree." Play Mystic Traveler, put on your headphones, put on the visualizer from iTunes, turn off the lights and enjoy the show. The album is pure mellow, you will be in a good mood when you are done.
