Excellent effort from Steve Baron who puts an energy into his work lacking in some of the biggest stars. Baron is able to take potentially mundane subjects and make them interresting through his writing and singing styles, and can take advantage of the country craze without sounding he is cashing on it.
This set is full of potential singles. Production from Pete Drake is superb bringing Baron's rich voice to the forefront and allowing each intrument to be heard in it's turn.
B/board, May 25 1974.
In the early seventies, Steve Baron put out two more albums, the 1971 "Sessions" and the 1973 "A Wanderer Like You", contained the classic song "The Magic Magician". Sadly, Steve passed away in March 2002.
