This excellent collection contains the bulk of dave mason's"blue thumb"recordings from the early 70's,gloriously remastered.At this time,Mason had just left Traffic and his songwriting would never quite reach such highs again.Tunes like"only you know and i know"and"shouldn't have took more than you gave"are now not only classics cuts,but more importantly,show that mason could balance his rocker mentality with more singer songwriter ambitions.A balance he later would have a hard time striking.His backing band on most of these recordings is the superb bonnie and delaney band which included leon russell and what was to become the rhythm section of derek and the dominos.The second half of the cd contains a prime live recording,from the troubadour(1971)in L.A.,where mason not only gives impressive renditions of his solo work but surprisingly tackles two old traffic tunes,"pearly queen"and"feeling alright".Sadly dave mason has been passed over in the annals of rock history but this cd proves that his early work is on par with anyone's of that era and is certainly a must have for any serious fan of classic rock.
