Nils Lofgren: I Came to Dance (A&M)

Wesley Strick, Circus, 9 June 1977

NILS GOT A haircut. Check the sleek black cover of Lofgren's latest — he looks like a troublemaker. A certified Travis Bickle time-bomb, Nils is shorn and ready for action. His back-cover likeness is really no-nonsense; the swarthy, skeletal Italo-Swede comes on like an ex-con bantamweight contender. Athletic in a feisty, below-the-belt way.
