tripnotiq cover hints @ the smashing majesty of this superb funky & psychedelic set w backwoodsian, weeded undertones; though not in an over abundance that would taint this jawn to render it a casualty of the seventies "rural rock" phenom.

This is an amazing album - a sort of cross between rock, rhythm & blues, pure blues, and a few more influences. From a musical perspective, Mike Finnigan is fantastic behind the B3, and his vocals on the cover of Son House's Death Letter Blues are just outstanding. He played with Hendrix on Electric Ladyland, and later toured with various iterations of CSNY. Jerry Wood plays a blistering guitar solo on the Dylan cover, Down In The Flood, and it is a shame he passed away before he could find his due. One of my all-time favorites, I've been playing this since it came out back in the early 1970s, and had the pleasure of seeing them live back then. Highly recommended.

Finnigan and Wood's Crazed Hipsters is one of the best records to come out of the early 70s. It's a damn shame this has not been issued on CD. Known as a cult classic, the covers of everything from Dylan to Son House show a depth far beyond the capability of most artists over the decades. A collection of high speed boogies, solid blues, great choices of lyrics, and very creative covers of a whole bunch of great songs. This is a must-hear for anyone serious about knowing the history of rock.
