Consumer Guide Reviews:

Encore! [RCA Victor, 1971]
Pretty soulful in his Castilian way, and his "Wichita Lineman" beats the Meters' (and Glen's). But the live version of "Light My Fire" mysteriously included on this best-of records for posterity one of the more obsequious band intros in entertainment history. And didn't anybody tape the scandalous "Star Spangled Banner" he did at the World Series? C+
