Lyrically naive and precocious, nonetheless instrumentally very nice.
And any album with Bobby Hutcherson commands attention, especially one made in the Sixties when he was at the top of his form and the most accomplished vibraphonist ever (with Gary Burton, Milt Jackson, and Earl Griffith close behind.)
Not up to his Blue Note work but very pleasant.
Enjoyable for the music, dated by the hippie-dippie dopey lyrics.
Thanks for this one, Lisa!
