"If you don't recognise the name, maybe you should. Al Kooper was everywhere back then...Blue-eyed soul with jazzy, freeform, eloquaent guitar and burbling keyboards tripping over one another, all tied together by disciplined horn riffing." R2, October 2014
"This 3 CD collection draws on some of Al's recordings from the mid nineties, including a live package which re-unites him with many of his former colleagues as he breathes new life into golden oldies such as Eric Andersen's 'Violets of Dawn', Randy Newman's 'Just One Smile' and Donovan's 'Season of the Witch'.
