Crusade [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matthew Greenwald
The final album of an unintentional trilogy, Crusade is most notable for the appearance of a very young, pre-Rolling Stones Mick Taylor on lead guitar.

The rest of the record, while very enjoyable, is standard blues-rock fare of the day, but somewhat behind the then-progressive flavor of 1967.
