“Available on CD for the very first time as Volume 4 in the Born Twice Records/Legends Remastered collectible full-color digipak series of early Jesus Music from the 70s. Another quality album from Johnson’s classic period (1972) that continues with the high standards set on Lord Doctor. Dynamics run the spectrum from the Dylan-esque rocker ’On To L.A.’ and the blistering hard rock of the title track, to rural acoustic ballads like ’Standin’ At The Station.’ Johnson’s barbed wit can be found in the finger-picked rag ’Something’s Goin’ On,’ as well as the lazy hippie country stroller ’Your Health Food Won’t Get You Into Heaven’. The opening ’Dilemma’ has a nice moody 12-string classic rock vibe. Jazz grooves come by way of ’Would You Believe’ (re-interpreted from the Exkursions album) and the closing instrumental cover of jazz organist Jimmy Smith’s ’Mellow Mood.’ Mike plays acoustic and electric guitars while the friends provide organ, guitar, bass and drums. For fans of Larry Norman, Phil Keaggy, Randy Matthews, Neil Young, Exkursions, Tom Petty and Daniel Amos!″ -Born Twice Records
