Notes & Reviews:

"...In this reissue, we have 78 minutes of some of the Philadelphia's best...For the money, it's a steal...Furthermore, you simply can't find a more colorful or exciting Grand Canyon...The grandeur is dizzying. The musicians seem to go a little mad...I'd pick this version over a hundred dead-pan Kunzels any day, real thunder or no real thunder..." -Haldeman, ARG
