Harvey Mandel: Fluctuating Intensity

Jim Esposito, Zoo World, 25 November 1972

HARVEY MANDEL is a conversationalist of flucuatingly intensities. Sometimes he's right with you, sometimes he's way ahead, and other times he spaces out and you might just as well be talking to a Fender amp. You can ask one question and he'll drift into a stream of consciousness, but when you follow-up you receive a terse "Yes" or "No" that leaves you stymied where to turn next. Then, he'll bail you out by starting to talk before you've thought of a question.
