The two standout tracks on this for me are Nubian lady and Below yellow bell. Barron is still playing with him but he changes out a couple of the players on this. He covers Hey Jude and it's odd. It starts out real quiet for a long time and slowwwwwly gets louder. It's a solid cover but I'm not a cover guy.
This was exactly my reaction to this record. The first and last tracks are awesome. The rest is OK except for Hey Jude which I can't stand to begin with.
