It's hopefully not an unfair observation to say that Skip Battin really lost an opportunity here to distinguish himself as a songwriter of note, but Skip is ultimately a disappointment. Partnering with Kim Fowley (as per most of his Byrds contributions of the era) and a really hot backing band, 'Skip''s redeeming features ultimately lie in the tasteful musicianship and nice production. But the stellar nature of 1972, a time when the West Coast was essentially the centre of the world musically, was not a year where a mediocre effort was going to pick up sales or kudos. Battin delivers smart lyrics over too many novelty/old timey style songs and few memorable or standout efforts. Shy of hooks, soul or a distinguishing anthem, this one is for the collectors.
