    This album is a masterpiece. In my opinion, at least.

    Well, the cool thing about music is that it's partially subjective. I would rank probably six or seven Bruce albums ahead of it, but to each his own.

    If you ever get to hear the 1974-03-09 Houston Lost Radio Show, it's very good - An in studio acoustic appearance of a pre-famous (at least in the south) Bruce with a few members of the band. Several nice reworkings of some of his songs from that era. He also laments at length about how the audiences in certain cities don't get the music.

    That's a great bootleg, especially Bruce's version of "Something You Got".

    I actually rank a few of Bruce's albums (BTR, Darkness, and the River) ahead of WIESS, but it's still pretty amazing -- especially Side Two -- Incident, Rosalita, and NYC Serenade.
