' This is a great solo album from Junie, his first solo effort after his hook-up with P.Funk. He benefits greatly from the presence of Lynn Mabry of the Brides doing back-up vocals. The album has a light feeling to it; it's certainly not as heavy or rock-oriented as his earlier solo albums. The album switches between dance-funk songs and uptempo ballads, the sort of thing he did so well with P.Funk. And for the most part, it works very well here also.' Rob Clough at duke.edu
Member groups Poco, Eagles. Randy Meisner's "new" album from Rev-Ola is a fanatic's rarities-only collection of tunes recorded as either unreleased demos or finished demos for stuff from his other records of the late '70s, the '80s, and the early '90s. The liner notes by Joey Stec are nothing more than hero worship, the sonics on these things are substandard, and most of the material sounds very dated and unfinished. The press material claims that Spencer Davis, James Griffin of Bread, Nick St. Nicholas of Steppenwolf, Billy Swan, and Charlie Rich Jr. are all present here, and it's not necessarily to be doubted, but it would be nice to know where (as well as who some of the backing vocalists were, since they sound so very familiar).
The third and final album by the Edinburgh-based duo of David McNiven and Angie Rew was barely released in 1971, but has gone on to become one of the most treasured 'acid folk' albums of all time. Comprising the epic title track and four unforgettable stand-alone songs, Amaryllis features outstanding support from musicians including Danny Thompson and Terry Cox of Pentangle, and is an essential purchase for all fans of psychedelic singer-songwriting.
