An Indianapolis, Indiana outfit whose album of self-penned compositions is worth checking out. The material is mostly strong, there's lots of keyboards and sound effects on Side Two but good harmonies too. Side One is quite Beatlesque. The prime cut You Never Win opens with a backwards guitar intro; The Sweetest Part is first class synthesized rock and I Don't Understand and I Need It Higher add the band's own dimension to The Beatles' early seventies sound.

1 You Never Win
2 The Sweetest Part
3 I Don't Understand
4 I Need It Higher
5 Stoney Wellitz
7 Fool's Paradise
Masterful '73 private pressing on the 700 West label. The two tracks that open sides 1 and 2, "You Never Win" and "Stoney Wellitz", seem out of place with the deep, rich, psychy atmosphere these talented guys create, but they're still extremely good, hard and rollicking songs.
