While one might expect Mick Ralph's contributions to be missed quite a lot (after he split for Bad Company), Ariel Bender (Spooky Tooth) seems to have little trouble filling the position (at least for now)...pretty consistent set, noteworthy at the very least, classic in some reviewers' opinions, likely the last essential offering for fans.
