Consumer Guide Reviews:

Cross Country [Capitol, 1973]
In which the spirit and guts of Joy of Cooking, united for maybe the last time (Toni has left to record solo with another label), go to Nashville for some country-fried. Needless to say, they've never enjoyed more professional backing, but especially in Nashville there is a well-known problem with professionals--they never push a song that extra notch. And at least half of these could use the help. Shouldn't be lost: "Midnight Blues." B
