That is a good question. It was not promoted well and got little airplay. The only reason I heard it as early as I did was that Chris Ethridge was a good friend of mine and he turned me on to it. I can remember sitting around in my bar at 5:00am one morning, zonked to the gills, listening to Chris play electric piano and sing Craney Crow.

This album was fantastic. It featured Dr.John, Leon Russell, Booker T and Priscilla Jones, Spooner Oldham, John Sebastian, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, and many others on various tracks as well as Joel Scott Hill, Johhny Barbata, and Chris Ethridge. This is truly one album that should be in everyones collection of early seventies music.

I'm blessed that this has been re-released on cd. I remember buying this after a Rolling Stone review (when it was worth reading). I couldn't keep this off my turntable so I was not sure it was gonna hit like it did originally to my ears. This holds up well. Scott's vocals have got all those elements that you like in a blues & rock singer. There is not a filler song in the bunch. In my opinion the version here of Craney Crow is better than the Dr. and that's saying something. They really sounded like a tight band that enjoyed playing with each other.

The standouts are Bring It To Jerome, It's Your Love, Craney Crow, Ole Man Trouble and Etheridge's L.A. Getaway. The other cuts are just a slight notch below those just mentioned. You might have missed this back in the 70's, but I promise it doesn't sound dated and you'll see that good music can be made while having fun. It's true these guys were seasoned session guys who made everybody else sound so good, but it's hard to believe this one went mostly unnoticed.

I own a record store in Tacoma WA and this LP came in in a box of records we bought . I had never heard of it so put it on and man what a great LP
This is very well produced with great Organ and backing vocals
I highly recomend finding a copy probably much easier to find it on Vinyl than on CD.

Great CD.Definitely one of the most overlooked albums of all time. The album was released in the early 1970s and the group was somewhat of a super group at the time. Joel Scott Hill (guitar/ vocals)was a member of Canned Heat. Chris Ethridge (bass/vocals) was in the Flying Burrito Brothers w/ Gram Parsons and John Barbata (drums)was a member of the Turtles and later Jefferson Airplane. There were quite a few guest appearances on the record including John Sebastian,Dr. John, Booker T and Leon Russell.It is still a mystery that this album has gone pretty much unknown all these years. Joel Scott Hill's vocals are as good as it gets yet he is still virtually unknown, which is a shame. The album,L A Getaway is 10 songs long and there is not a dud on the album. A few of the standouts are "Bring It To Jerome","Ole Man Trouble","Its Your Love","Craney Crow","Long Ago" and the title track which features Chris Ethridge on vocals. The album was brought back to my attention a couple of months ago when a locally owned radio station in the Cincinnat area started playing "Bring It To Jerome". I immediately started looking for the album. It was well worth the money.

That's why the company didn't promote the album. Joel was touring with Canned Heat. Johnny was with the Jefferson Starship. Chris was touring with Willie Nelson. They wouldn't go on the road and promote the album. All that work in the studio by these guys who loved to play together and were true friends. What a fantastic timeless album.L.A. Getaway
