Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Lost Gonzo Band [MCA, 1975]
Jerry Jeff Walker's backup band transcends its own roots to offer the best evidence to date for Austin's rep as the last refuge of the hippie visionary. The record will probably stand as the best by a new group this year; side one is virtually unflawed; and Gary Nunn's "Money" reminds me of Peter Townshend's "Tattoo" in its understated rock and roll eloquence. B+
