Sealed 1968 Original. "It Never Got Any Better Than This. In 1968, As The Byrds Were Making Valiant (If Unappreciated) Efforts To Bring Rock And Country Music Closer Together, The Dillards Were Trying To Do Some Of The Same For Bluegrass And Rock. The Result Was 13 All-But-Perfect Tracks Mixing Some Pretty Laid-Back Topicality ("Hey Boys") And Humor ("The Biggest Whatever"), Cowboy Songs ("Single Saddle," Which Gene Autry Should Have Covered), Just Plain Gorgeous Poetry ("Lemon Chimes"), And A Couple Of Unexpected Covers ("I've Just Seen A Face," "Reason To Believe"), With Arrangements That Exude A Delicate, Subdued Lushness ("Listen To The Sound") And An Element Of Electric Rock (Courtesy Of Joe Osborn On Electric Bass And Jim Gordon On Drums) That Worked Perfectly. In Many Ways, This Is A Finer Rural/Rock Fusion Album Than Sweetheart Of The Rodeo, The First Flying Burrito Brothers Album, Or The Beau Brummels' Efforts During This Same Period, And An Indispensable Part Of Any Collection Of '60s Music." Bruce Eder, AMG.
