TJR says

The album is a moody, proggy, jazzy affair and doesn’t do much for me – with the exception of “Buzzin’ Fly”, which is positively breezy by comparison, featuring some nifty work on the vibraphone from David Friedman and some very fine 12-string guitar from Tim. Noticeably, “Buzzin’ Fly” was written much earlier than the rest of the work – around 1966 – and was originally performed with a group Buckley had during high school, the Harlequin 3, with bassist Jim Fielder and later lyricist, Larry Beckett. To Buckley’s great irritation, “Buzzin’ Fly” became his most requested live tune – and now here I am pressing play and repeat nearly 50 years on. Pah, what do we music fans know?
