I so love this music. I got tell Mr. Wheeler twice how much his music meant to me and here through this whole LP we are treated to Mr. Jarrett being truly challenged harmonically. I wore this LP out as a teen.

Bill Beran says:

One of my favorite records ever–it practically lived on my turntable when it came out in '76. Too bad Mr. Jarrett didn't make more records like this one.

Harry Howell says:
