Thirty Days Out were formed New York in 1971 by John Micaleff (pronouced "McCullough"), a folksinger from Michigan and Jack Malken, who had previously been with The Outcasts. After teaming up with Melnick and Lowe, they found a place to practice but had to relocate in Greenfield, Massachussets when their neigbours complained! They soon managed to get a recording contract with Reprise and their first album was released in the summer of '71.

The Songs
Playing a well behaved version of San Francisco west coast and Midwestern hippie rock with slight progressive moves, 'Miracle Licks' will appeal to those who long for the hazy days of Grand Funk Railroad, early REO Speedwagon and more importantly Quicksilver Messenger Service. 'Honey I Do' is standard '70s good time rock, pleasant enough blue-jean boogie and the type of thing that backed-up clogged airwaves in the early part of the decade, but it's the final track on this side that wins points for creativity. 'The Sun Keep Right On Shining' with its well placed use of Mellotron and haunting melody makes searching for this record all the more worthwhile. As shamefully post-Woodstock a title as 'Everybody's Got to Have A Song' is, you would be forgiven for expecting the worse but it's actually a very good tune with excellent vocals from John Micaleff who shines on much of the record. 'Never Felt Better' sounds like an REO Speedwagon/ Neal Doughty styled rocker featuring a prairie burning organ solo and barroom piano with 'Take A Look At Yourself' closing out the album along similar lines making for a slightly above average album of groovy Midwest rock- New York style.
