A far out 420 friendly acid trip of a record that never gets old. Welcome To Hollywood, Henri The Clown, and Icicle Star Tree
are all first rate hooky tunes wrapped in psych production that was way ahead of its time. Leon Russell and Marc Benno join forces here and the result is a blissful creative record that never got the credit it deserves, even to this day. If you see one turn up in the dollar bin, grab it and run.(K.Liotti Allmusic user)
Super fun crazy record! Flamin' Groovies one second, New Riders Of The Purple Sage for a quick sec, then The Move! Genius magical mysterious pop trip!(L Hinkhouse, allmusic user)
I second that completely. And i see the readers here throw their hands up in horror if i say now that's the best work the both musicians have done in their careers...;-)...and naturaly that is just the half truth. My truth. Surely Leon Russell have done so much of music, on own albums, for other musicians in his life that no one can make such a statement. I know a lot of music by Leon Russel (not so much by Marc Benno) and i've heard very good songs by him but...never an entire album that impressed me so much like this. Anyway i love this album and i highly recommend it to the folks here who haven't heard it yet.
