Consumer Guide Reviews:

Half Live at the Bitter End [Buddah, 1971]
Those who want something besides the Firesign Theatre to make them laugh when they're really stoned might try this goofy, well-edited tribute to the short-circuit synapse. A warning, though: I've always liked Rose on Johnny Carson. Some don't. B+

Further Notes:

Distinctions Not Cost-Effective [1970s]: Still stoned.
