Review: A relatively unknown album, this is a favorite of mine (and some of my friends).

Some of the best tracks are 'Grow Some Funk of Your Own', 'Street Kids', and

'Billy Bones and the White Bird'.

The only 'miss' in my mind is 'Feed Me'.

BTW, every copy of this album / tape / CD I've heard is a bit 'off', almost like an

amateur tape. I can only assume the master tapes have a slight flaw, almost as if

the EQ wasn't set properly.
