"With its immediately recognizable M C Escher cover, this intriguing folk/rock/psych release from 1974 is another incredibly rare album enjoying its first CD outing courtesy of Radioactive. A Joint Effort's Final Effort was originally recorded and released by Canada's University Of New Brunswick on its Little Records label (Little Records 101) which, despite its lack of wider recognition, is generally regarded by those that know as a diverse and eclectic album with a number of outstanding tracks. One pundit described it as 'a weird mix of early CSNY, with shades of Perth County Conspiracy and a dash of early Eagles thrown in.' The first side, with the superb 'Winter' is particularly impressive -- largely acoustic hippy folk rock with the occasional electric guitar thrown in for good measure. Side 2, however, is an altogether rockier affair with standout tracks 'Greed For Goldand,' an up-tempo fuzzed-out cover of a Horse With No Name combining effectively to elevate Final Effort to a different musical plane."
