Consumer Guide Reviews:

Juicy Lucy [Atco, 1969]
More English eclecticism in the new orthodox mold: eight vocally oriented cuts with a lot of inventive guitar and rhythm effects and excellent song selection. Listen to side two first. An A minus if the vocal mix weren't so muddy--I don't normally complain about such niceties, but on this lp the lack of clarity is noticable and annoying. B+
