First Edition

First Edition

Sealed 1969 Stereo Original. Custom "But You Know I Love You" Hype Sticker On The Jacket. Rare! First Copy We Have Seen In Six Years. Includes "Ruby Don't Take Your Love To Town." “………It's Hard To Deny The Appeal Of "Ruby" To Some Pop Radio Audiences, As It Did Linger Right Under The Top Five On The National Charts. Thelma Camacho And Terry Williams Make A Definite Early Jefferson Airplane-Type Statement On "Run Through Your Mind," While The Equally Cerebral "It's Raining In My Mind" Has The Duo Backed By A Heavy String Section, Their Voices Blending Beautifully With The Classical Instrumentation. This Particular Song Is So Exquisite It Balances Out The Album's Weaker Spots. Clearly, Thelma Camacho Should Have Been Given Some Hit Material To Sing On. As The Band Concept Dissolved, So Did The Need To Spread The Tunes Around Evenly. Settle, Williams, And Rogers Do A Fine CSNY Job On "Sleep Comes Easy," Their Harmonies Perfect. Though A Later Album Would Be Called Transition, It Was This Second Album That Was The True Transition, And There's Enough Evidence Here That The First Edition Were Contenders. Kenny Rogers' Personality And Charm Were Better Suited To A Solo Career, And He Certainly Deserved His Fame. It's Just Too Bad This Excellent Ensemble Couldn't Have Moved On As Well.” Joe Viglione, AMG.
