Notes: An early release by Mr. Friedman. The liner notes say that the first track was recorded with Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Revue which accounts for the plethora of artists listed ni teh credits. We are talking the likes of Eric Clapton, Dr. John, Mick Ronson and on and on. Kinky, as always, chooses a nice range of material and carries it off in his own inimitable style. We get, along with some Kinky originals, songs by Bob Dylan and Ray Stevens. The wonderful cover art plays upon the old familiar Camel cigarette packaging.
