Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory

Shoot Out At The Fantasy Factory

The lukewarm reviews that greeted this 1973 release seem almost perfunctory now because time has been good to this album. There’s a dusky groove throughout that often sounds the way hammocks feel at twilight in summer: gentle and unassuming. The breathy sax and organ of the 11-minute “Roll Right Stones” pull you in and gently rock; “Evening Blue” is an afternoon’s expanding shadow, and the finale, “(Sometimes I Feel So) Uninspired,” glows like the third beer into the evening. The album features the Muscle Shoals house-band rhythm section, alongside the band’s leaders (and album producers) Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood.
