West Bruce & Laing: Why Dontcha (Columbia)

Robot A. Hull, Creem, January 1973

LESLIE WEST is an obnoxious fatso; Jack Bruce was the worst of the three Creams (note his horrible songwriting and bass lead fill-ins) and made two of the most boring albums in the whole history of rock; and Corky Laing is a non-entity (That's not what his brother R.D. says. – Ed.). Therefore, you'd assume that when three losers like these got together to make an album it would have to be superficial drivel. Not true.
