AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger

Although there is no label or catalog number on this LP, pressed in a limited edition of just a few hundred copies for the collector's market, be assured that it does exist. Of course this is of considerable interest to fans of Blue Öyster Cult, but general psychedelic collectors with little or no love for that band will find this worth seeking as well. Imagining a poppier Love with higher vocals and instrumental arrangements more akin to Doorsy guitars and organs gets you a little close to picturing the Stalk-Forrest Group sound. Most of the tunes are pretty compact, although occasionally they get into some pretty inspired guitar jamming, particularly on the lengthy "St. Cecilia." It's difficult to fathom why Elektra did not deem this worthy of release; about the only major criticism that can be levied against it is that some of the songs sound too similar to each other.
