Music - 5 stars

This album is not an extension of Ahead Rings Out. Getting to This is much quieter. It has a parcel of fine songs. Most of Jack Lancaster's playing sounds like a post bop Blue Note Blowing session from the 1960's

Mick does some stunning slide guitar, and demonstrates his great vocal range, while the band really cooks.
This is a really nice companion piece to Ahead Rings Out, but there's plenty to admire on this record by itself. We give a hearty recommendation to both.

There's a good looking gatefold with the band on the cover.
