Creatively different, often quirky tribal guitar-driven rock, mixed with some humor.
NOTES
This album is the long-awaited follow-up to "Watts Up With The Passion!?" It contains a wider degree of variation and creativity. Some songs are heavy, some are humorous. Some songs are melodic. Many of these songs use out-of-the-ordinary scales to get new melodic ideas and chord structures. All of the songs feature Mark's uniquely gifted and spirited guitar playing.

You will find many influences, such as: Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix, Rory Gallagher, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, John Coltrane, Frank Zappa, Jimmy Page, Robin Trower, Jeff Beck, and McCoy Tyner.

Also included are the infamous new & improved remakes of 5 songs from the "Watts Up" album. This gives the album playing time at 73 minutes.
