The Definitive Dave Mason Work.
Review written by Ross Leo, December 24th, 2004
My first exposure to Dave Mason was his backup work for Jimi Hendrix on the one-take studio example of "Watchtower". I have followed his work since then. I never tire of this piece ("Alone Together"). I bought when it was first issued (a motled, flesh/brown/black vinyl platter), and still listen to it (a taped copy, not the platter). His later stuff and performances show off the same brilliance exhibited in this album. The only shame is that his agents and recording companies didn't do their jobs any better than they did, and he remains less well-known and less heard than an artist as talented as Dave should be; which is widely and often. The sole saving grace is that he never compromised, and has remained true to his talent's calibre. The artists from those days are exceedingly rare, and those that remained any good rarer still. Dave was great, and got better with time, and still today the quality never lacks, and he never disappoints.
great album, good songwriting and fine guitar playing

A typical early '70th album and (post Traffic) Dave Mason shows his skills as a songwriter, singer and more special, his guitar playing. The (lead)guitar lines are very enjoyable, specially shown in the two long tracks (Shouldn't have took more... and: Look at me look at you). Also check out the beautiful ballad Sad and deep as you, just mind the acoustic guitar and the piano part, it's very tasteful (another beautiful version of this song can be found on the Welcome to the canteen album by Winwood, Mason, Capaldi etc). Never a dull moment on this first Dave Mason album!
Wow! I'm still scratching my head!

I just unloaded 400 plus LPs to a young vinyl junkie here in NYC. Some of those LPs just had to be replaced. 'Alone Together' by Dave Mason was one of 'em! More later . . .
