4.0 out of 5 stars FINALLY on Compact Disc!, July 5, 2007
This review is from: Edgar Winter Group With Rick Derringer (Audio CD)
I am so happy to FINALLY see this released on CD! This album was one of my recommendations to Wounded Bird records after they re-released 1979's "The Edgar Winter Album" and 1981's "Standing On Rock". I note the other review of this album here calls it the "Swan Song" for the Edgar Winter Group - perhaps in name only.

Edgar's further releases, such as 1975's "Jasmine Nightdreams" also included Dan Hartman, Chuck Ruff & Rick Derringer, not to mention performances from his brother Johnny, but it was released as an Edgar Winter album, not The Edgar Winter Group. Following this album, he released albums as a solo artist.

This album was an excellent release. I don't agree that it's not on the same par with 'They Only Come Out At Night' and 'Shock Treatment', it's a completely different type of album, different styles of music and composition and non-conceptual.

There are several great tunes on this album, including "Cool Dance", "People Music" [a staple of Edgar's], "Nothing Good Comes Easy", "Paradise/Sides", "Diamond Eyes", and the de rigueur synthesizer-based instrumental "Chainsaw".

I have ordered this already from Wounded Bird and am anxious to check out their remastering job. They did an INCREDIBLE job with The Edgar Winter Album and Standing on Rock. I've purchased several copies of this album on vinyl, but it does not transfer well to CD.

If you love the music of Edgar Winter, you will love this album. It was a bit overlooked upon its release. He wound up releasing two albums in 1975, this one, and "Jasmine Nightdreams", which is an absolute STELLAR album. If you enjoy the talent and virtuosity of Edgar Winter, this album definitely has a place in your collection.
