Singer/songwriter-guitarist Damon was writing material quite similar to the cult psychedelic Song of a Gypsy album about 30 years later, when he re-emerged with this self-released CD; one of the musicians accompanying Damon on Song of a Gypsy, guitarist Charlie Carey, is still on board here. Damon's voice has deepened, as one would expect, and also has taken on even more of a crooning quality than it had back in the late '60s. It's not on the level of his first album, partly because the sound lacks the slight period psychedelic charm of the debut, and also because the optimistic, quasi-mystical lyrics verge on new age homilies at times.
