Summer Wishes, Winter Dreams, 02:56. No Sooner Said Than Done, 05:59.

Yet George Benson makes this mistake twice on Bad Benson ; the band can’t quite manage a groove in 5/4 on Brubeck’s Take Five and once again falter with a horrid disco version of Ellington’s Take The ‘A’ Train complete with fake train whistles. Creed Taylor should have offered rebates to anyone that could listen to these numbers more than once without wincing. However, the rest of the album is pretty good; Benson has always been an excellent guitarist, and there’s little here of the full-blown pop artist he would later become.
