There are tracks enough on this album that are painful to sit through, without enduring this one. The Mike Curb Congregation accompanies Davis on a song that surely will retain its historical value simply for being about the closest music has ever come to being pure excrement. Things pick up from there, but the general impression is that of an artist whose forte is the Great American Songbook being forced into something of much less value.
