Personnel: Jay Boy Adams (vocals, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, slide guitar, percussion); Paul Culver (electric guitar, piano); Woodrow Key (electric guitar); David Lindley (banjo, fiddle); Danny Darling (drums, percussion).
Jay Boy Adams' second and last shot at stardom took more of an L.A. country-rock approach than his more countrified debut album, with some Allman Brothers-like guitar playing, some Eagles-like vocal harmonies, and a guest appearance by Jackson Browne. Browne crony David Lindley made a return visit, playing his usual collection of stringed instruments. But Adams still didn't manage to present a strong enough identity to emerge from the thicket of noble intentions and respectable musical influences his music evoked. More to the point, the record didn't sell, so Atlantic cut him loose. ~ William Ruhlmann
