Children Of The Future joined engineer/producer Glyn Johns with the SMB, a partnership that would last for their next four albums. From one of the best debut albums of all-time, side two is one of the best album sides of all-time. It begins with Boz Scaggs' two fine contributions to the LP. "Baby's Callin' Me Home" is a mellow tune with Ben Sidran's filling in with jazzy harpsichord figures. It remained one of Boz' staples in his live shows for years. A raw, blending segue follows into the rockin' "Steppin Stone", with one of Steve Miller's great guitar solos and a seamless transition into "Roll With It", which features Beach Boy harmonies and another great solo from Steve. Then you hear footsteps and a door slam in the intro of "Junior Saw It Happen". It contains drummer Tim Davis' vocal and yet one more short, concise solo from Steve. "Fanny Mae" has been called a tip of the hat to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and that sounds right with the late Davis on vocals again and Steve on harmonica. Side two ends by tucking you into bed with the slowest, most subdued version of "Key to the Highway" I have ever heard. I became a big SMB fan based on my initial exposure to this LP, only releasing my addiction when the Joker emerged. It might be considered strange that when SMB finally unlocked the key to commercial success, I dismissed Miller as a has-been. Alas, the public at large and I have disagreed on many counts. Nevertheless, IMHO this album is a masterpiece, merging blues with psychedelia. It remains a classic and still holds up with great guitar work, excellent vocals, interesting compositions and stellar production value.
