Kak-Ola

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Although this is actually the Kak album with a bunch of bonus tracks, it merits a separate entry both because this version boasts a different title Kak-Ola, and because the bonus tracks make this disc twice as lengthy as the original LP. Those curious about the original Kak because of its high reputation among some collectors might be disappointed by its average, often derivative particularly of Moby Grape San Francisco psychedelic rock.
