Dave Mason's best-selling and best-known album, thanks to the monster hit "We Just Disagree"--which by Federal law must be played at least twice daily on every soft rock radio station in the US--1977's LET IT FLOW is a pinnacle of creamy-smooth, ultra-slick California soft rock on a par with the collected works of Linda Ronstadt.
From the opening "So High (Rock Me Baby and Roll Me Away)," Mason's overdubbed harmonies and seemingly George Harrison-influenced slide guitar are the dominant sounds on the album. The title track, another hit single, neatly encapsulates the general theme of the lyrics AND the music. There's nothing here that rocks even as hard as his boogie classic "Feelin' Alright" from his days with Traffic, but that's no bad thing. Hear LET IT FLOW and know the meaning of mellow.
