Album Review

Continuing on a downhill curve, this record did little for Carole King's career. Recorded in Austin, Texas with a group of musicians who had been backing Jerry Jeff Walker at the time, the main failing is that King doesn't play piano on any but three tracks, and then not as well as she's been come to be known. The songs don't hold up either, and that's a shame, for while nothing here is great, given some of her old backing musicians, she could have had a much better chance as making this release better. Not one of her best.

A fantastic album

Perhaps this was not a commercial album, but the songs, especially "You Still Want Her" and "Eagle" are some of Carole's best ever!

Outstanding

Using Jerry Jeff's band gave this album a raw and natural sound that is easy to listen to. Jerry's old rhythm section (Freddie Krc, Ron Cobb, and Reese Wynams) lock in solid grooves that allow Carole to stretch out and do some of her best vocal work. Much better than some of her previous LA polished projects.
