I am a BIG TOMMY BOLIN FAN, with about 15 cd's featuring the man in my collection. This cd is by far not the worst one, but it's even further from being my favorite. After the Tommy Bolin Archives releases From The Archives, Vol. 1, they released this little ditty. A throw together of demos, one-off live material and jams, and assorted ideas Tommy just put on a 4-track home recorder. Now the T.B. Archives always do a premium job of polishing up the sound as best as they can, and this is another fine example of that. This stuff sound-wise is very good, but material-wise it's fine and enjoyable. Actually, if you're a 100% Bolin die hard then pick this up because it's always great to find a whole collection of unreleased material from Tommy. But if your'e not a die hard then pick up either both his From The Archives Vol. 1 and 2 cd's, which is loaded with awesome stuff even for the casual listener. If you like those then this will be good to add to your collection, but it's not on the same par as the Archives releases. With that said, the best tracks on here are an Energy track, Luka Roo, an alt. demo take on Meaning of Love, a KILLER demo of Burnin' and Lootin', a live Bolin Band Whiskey Head Woman and two version of You're No Angel, the 1st acoustic version being the best. LONG LIVE TOMMY BOLIN.
