AllMusic Review by

So what can D. Andrew Rath do besides give Lauri Paisley uncatagorizable, immoral support (if that's his idea of a good time)? Well, here is a solo venture from him and it's not bad. Side one of the tape (it's all one work) gets started with a bang, with Rath adding a Middle-eastern flare to the proceedings. After that, things settle down to a more conventional ride. There is less of an element of surprise on this set than on Truth Or Consequences. This is a shame because the eclecticism at the beginning set a pretty high standard for the rest of the piece to follow. Still, this is fun to listen to on long drives, which is how I first heard it.
