BGO's 2012 two-fer combines Sugarloaf's first two albums: 1970's self-titled debut and its 1971 follow-up, Spaceship Earth. Sugarloaf's debut was a far trippier affair than its funky AM pop hit "Green-Eyed Lady" would suggest. A better indication of what is in store is the medley of the Doors' version of Willie Dixon's "Back Door Man" and the Band's "Chest Fever" -- this is a bluesy, spacy collection of hippies who like to stretch things to the moon and back. Spaceship Earth is a bit heavier than Sugarloaf, perhaps as compensation for a lack of pop hooks like "Green-Eyed Lady," but both are prime time capsules of post-'60s hippie rock. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
