Loved it (4/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.0)
Review written by Anonymous from \, May 8th, 2011

ok, Maybe Mariposa is not one of Dave's greatest albums, but it has enough songs to please any Dave Mason fan. Listening to each song I can't find one that isn't real "entertaining" to listen to, with his gifted vocals amazing lead and acoustic guitars, and his great Dave mason Band I don't see any reason to call it "lukewarm".
Bottom line:
To a Dave Mason longtime fan, no letdown no nothing,
GREAT album.
Thank you

Don't sell this one short! (4/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.04/5.0)

Although this 1978 album was a departure from the classsic guitar work that made Dave Mason famous with his early work from Traffic. This is a great example of Mason's diverse artistic expression and an artist who was at the top of his game during the decade of the 70's.

This album is filled with beautful vocals and phenominal mandolin work. It never received quite the popularity of his earlier work but this is a definate plus for any collection.

A mediocre album with only a few high lights (3/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.03/5.0)
Review written by Tom Donaldson, November 27th, 2004

This album falls short of the quality of "Alone Together", "It's Like You Never Left", "Let It Flow" or the 1974 self-titled album "Dave Mason". There are however, a few nice moments. "The Words" is an excellent song, which was written by Jim Krueger, and received alot of air time. There are only 2 songs that have any extended guitar leads. They are "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" and "Warm Desire". These are the high points of the album. The album is laced with great vocal harmonies, but it seems these vocals took the place of any great or inspired song writing. One interesting note is that 5 of the songs on this album were either written or co-written by Jerry Williams, who a few years later wrote songs that became big hits for Eric Clapton.
Although, this is not a great album, Mason fans will enjoy listening to it.

Only luke warm and tender love was put into this album (2/5.02/5.02/5.02/5.02/5.0)
Review written by John Fitzgerald from Peabody, MA, USA, November 27th, 2004

Unfortunately, at the height of Dave's solo popularity, he could only come up with a luke warm album such as this. Although his cover of the classic "Will you still love me tomorrow" was fairly successful, artistically, it, and the rest of the album is somewhat of a letdown. With a lack of musical focus unlike many previous outings, many songs included are either pale imitations of other recordings or simply not very interesting musical ideas which makes for a rather bland record although slightly better on the whole than his 1974 selftitled album, this is not a good representation of what Mason is capable of, it may be good to get after learning his more essential material and you wish for more but it's best left alone until later.
