Consumer Guide Reviews:

Entrance [Epic, 1970]
Better you should graft bebop harmonies and solos onto a rock (or even artrock) trunk for your jazz fusion than arrange rock and not-so-rock songs for a Stan-Kenton-goes-to-Nevada bouquet. If only Edgar didn't try and conceal his mild-mannered vocal tendencies behind that shriek. And if only he scatted and soloed like a brother. C

Edgar Winter's White Trash [Epic, 1971]
So this is that hardass roadhouse rockaroll, eh? Sounds like overkill to me, which I guess is very Texas, but I figured in Texas they'd be too real to mistake hysteria for a good time. And since when do they rhyme "subjective" and "objective" down there? Or wonder whether the world will be saved by Mr. White or Mr. Black? C
