Recorded right after the Youngbloods broke up, and released on their own Raccoon label, 1972's Mid-Mountain Ranch was the sole solo album from the band's multi-instrumentalist Banana a.k.a. Lowell Levinger. Except that it wasn't really a solo album, because the Bunch included Joe Bauer and Michael Kane from Bananas former outfit! So, Mid-Mountain Ranch really was a Youngbloods album sans Jesse Colin Young; and the absence of their former front man allows Banana and his Bunch to stretch out with some bluegrass and jazz licks alongside their patented folk rock sound.
