Well, careful what you wish for, because after absorbing the band's Top 20 hit with a reconstructed version of Leadbelly 's folk-blues, "Black Betty" still darn near irresistible, despite the racial controversy it stirred up and the rumored poaching of its rambunctious arrangement from underground band Starstruck , die-hard classic rock anthropologists will find slim pickings among Ram Jam 's first album fare.
