On this album from 1972 there is a difference in style of the music between the first and second half which gives the impression that the members of this mainstream band from Youngstown, Ohio, were starting to go in different directions with their music. The first half of the album features songs written by John Sferra (drums) and Dan Pecchio (bass, flute) and the second half by guitar maestro Phil Keaggy. The thing that holds the album together is the impressive musicianship of Glass Harp while Keaggy's guitar playing is far less restrained and more showy than anything in his later solo albums. For any serious Keaggy fan this album and its predecessors 'Glass Harp' and 'Synergy' are essential listening.
