Gary Wright: Footprint [A&M, 1971]
Like his mentor, George O'Hara, Gary makes his spiritual home right next to his musical one, close by that great echo chamber in the sky. But unlike George he writes anthems that are forthright and tuneful--why, even "Give Me the Good Earth" is down-to-earth. The ecology-minded will also approve of "Love to Survive" and "Stand for Our Rights," both of which are vague enough to appeal to every constituency. Cosmic-commercial lives.
