I bought this cd to finally own the first track, "Love is Alive," and had no idea what I was getting myself into with the rest of the album. I didn't like the song "Dream Weaver" that much, and the other songs I had never heard before. Now four years later and after listening to this album several hundred times, I rank this as one of the best albums from the seventies. I even like "Dream Weaver" now! The music is excellent: straight ahead rock; swirling, slower, moog-driven love...all belted out by Gary's great, soul-singer voice. If you like R'n'R, you'll love this album.
