The debut album from the Wilson sisters. There's rock tunes here, but also more folky Joni Mitchell-esque tunes as well - a nice mix. Overall, a fair-to-middlin' album, but definitely better than their later arena rock stuff. Wish we heard more deep cuts from this one on the classic rock radio format.

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: #7
Tracks: And right out of the gate, we're hit with Magic Man - what a great single (#9 pop) and I loved it as a ten year old kid because it got all kinds of airplay in west Texas. The other single, which I prefer, is Crazy On You. Those are the two best tunes here, but I also dig White Lightning & Wine. I don't seek out the other tunes but I don't mind if they shuffle around every now and then.
Personal Memory Associated with this CD: As with much music of this time, I'm reminded of hanging out in the hot west Texas desert with my friends, listening to AM radio, catching horny toads in the alleys.
