My favorite of theirs
The All Music Guide Review of "Hat Trick" claims that their third release contained their first cover, but it's really this second one, featuring their lovely three-part harmonies on John Martyn's brooding "Head and Heart". This is the only release I feel really holds up in the 21st century, and I had 'em all on vinyl. Though as a teen I liked this CSN-lite band a lot, unfortunately much of it just sounded lame as I grew older, especially after Fifth-Beatle George Martin's florid production started writing checks America's songwriting couldn't cover. But revisiting it now, much of it is at least as appealing as I found it before. Some less-loved songs seem even better on the rediscovery. It's not groundbreaking, it's not great, but there's room in pop for these releases. Though Dewey does employ his favorite words a lot over the years (purple!), I've developed an appreciation for his genial storytelling, and the opinion he was the trio's most talented lyricist.
