You must listen these records 2 times , as diferent music styles
exist together without any connection between the songs.From early rock & roll songs (like "Treasure Of Your Love","You Can't Give Back The Love") among blues rock outfits and some true "JOSEPH"style tracks as "Jezabell Gables", "Funky Junky Woman", "Cajun Country" etc.
