Right on, getting all the 70'ies associations! Tight, though a little 
muddled on the sound - it's a little bit like there's only one massive 
instrument playing everything. On the other hand, that's how this kind 
of music often sounds.

Though a little bit too straightforward for my tastes, it's grrovy and 
well worth playing through.

Thanks for sharing!
