With or without the commentary option provided in the disc menu, the perspective on the band, as well as its collaboration with the label, prior to their signing (and that of their City of Angels peers, Love) solely a folk axis, reaffirms the ambition behind the music itself as much as the essays in the booklet within the package (a 40-page hardback book appears in deluxe editions available of both DVD and Blu-Ray).

My second semester, the music editor dropped a Fenton Robinson LP on my desk, Night Flight. You like metal; they play guitar--he plays guitar, the editor told me. If we don't run a review, Alligator Records is going to stop servicing us.
Night Flight opened up a whole new world for me--the blues led me, inevitably, to Basie, who led to Duke, who led to Mingus, who led to Miles, who led to ...
