Zimmerman was a member of Life, but she left before they recorded their album. She opted instead to record this solo LP. It’s a completely terrific album, one of the very best 60's rock albums by a female singer. Zimmerman has a voice that’s alternately powerful and affecting; she’s as suited to folk-rockers like “Paint Me A Picture” as she is to tougher rock like “Bidin’ My Time.” The latter is an appropriate metaphor for her singing style, as she hits the high notes and brings on the power exactly when it’s needed most. The arrangement of these songs, and her timing as a singer, is ace. She’s not a songwriter, but the majority of these excellent songs were written by her collaborators, so there’s a feeling of consistency and comfort. Some of the guitar playing will hit the right spots for psych heads, but mostly this is just great unpretentious rock and roll without much experimentation. Needless to say, highly recommended."

Lori went on to form Toulousse with Heather Gauthier and Judi Richards.
