Brinsley Schwarz: Despite It All

John Morthland, Creem, October 1971

THE TITLE apparently refers to the incredible hype this group received when they first played Fillmore East and their management blew $120,000 to fly over the whole British press corps, with predictably disastrous results. And an appropriate title it is, for refreshing music literally bursts out of this album.
