AllMusic Review by

Andy Clark and Mick Hutchunson recorded three fine albums of deranged psychedelic blues between 1968 and 1971. This is their first album from 1968 which showcases the duo in a more formulaic blues-rock mode that they would later use as a springboard to develop their own distinctive sound. The music sits on the juncture where post-psychedelia, Eastern-inspired raves, and low-tech blues meet, and like early Fleetwood Mac, the Groundhogs, and John Mayall, they keep a progressive sound while maintaining a blues spirit. This debut is an inspired introduction to the later classics, and while it is not as far out as their later '70s material, this Little Wing reissue has a classic underground charm.
