This first solo release from session-guitarist extraordinaire Jesse Ed Davis celebrates the ethos of early-'70s album making; namely, renting a studio for a weekend, supplying lots of drugs and alcohol, and then inviting a few dozen of your closest friends over to record. The album itself is filled with cameos by Davis' musician pals: Leon Russell, Eric Clapton, and Gram Parsons among them. However, it does neither the all-star backing musicians, nor Davis, much credit. With the exception of Van Morrison's "Crazy Love," most of the album was penned by Davis, and in spite of some strong rockers ("Every Night Is Saturday Night for Me,") the downplaying of Davis' exemplary soloing ability does the guitarist a disservice.
