    Years ago I heard what seemed like an entire side of one of Steve’s early albums but I never knew what it came from. It was psychedelic and the songs ran together from what I remember. Anyone know what this would be?

    ^ It's Sailor from 1968. Arguably his single finest release ever.

    I still like those first four of his, plus some of Eagle - but I have little time for his other 70s work and never enjoyed his stuff from later on.

    No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

    ^ No. 5 is freaky for sure, but neither this nor the followup possess that "flow" which so marks out the first four; between highly memorable melodies, whims and effects and pure zanity. I always thought Sailor stood pretty much out from the rest anyway; arguably one of the quintessential San Fran-albums from the 60s.

    Not really; first four LPs for me. Your Saving Grace has been OOP in CD format for years. Pity.

    ^ Yepz. "Baby's House" was one of Nicky Hopkins' finest hours as rock keyboardist overall, and "Your Saving Grace" (title track) Tim Davis' best achievement with the band. IMHO.

    #5 is distinctly back-loaded: the last three songs are easily the best.
