Music - 5 stars

Excellent album by a group fronted by Supa and Dennis Belline. The production was done by the legendary Bob Johnston.

The album gets five stars for extraordinary songwriting "Riverhead Jail," ,"Brother John" and ,"Far too many Changes Came" hold up well today
If you've heard anything, it's probably "Sister Salvation," a "turntable hit" on a few progressive rock stations at the time the record was released. "Man" has a high degree of imagination, is very accessible, and has a unique singer with Supa.

Unfortunately the group never jelled, and broke up after this record
We suggest seeking this album out. It's a great addition to a 60's collection, and a long lost musical treasure. The album jacket has a misty photo of the band members

Vinyl History's vast repositority of useless factoids

Don't confuse this group with the Welch band bearing the same name Supa [Richard Supa] and Dennis Belline collaborated in an obscure band called Denny Belline and The Rich Kids. They released one album on RCA in 1966. Richard Supa went onto a career as a session player and songwriter.
His song "Chip Away The Stone" has been covered by Aerosmith and Humble Pie among others.
Supa also released four solo albums between 1971 and 1978.

Man also produced a cover of Bob Dylan's "Girl Of The North Country" that has to be heard to be believed. As far as we know it was only available on 45 rpm.
