"Jim Ittenbach head honcho for the Maryland-based Troubled Spirit have proudly released their mini CD, Call It What You Want. Joining Ittenbach on the disc is Jimmy Buter, Darryl Freeman and Rick Linares. The disc includes three tunes, "Traffic Jam", "Judgement Day" and "Loser, Loser".

The music of Troubled Spirit is different in that it's got some southern rock, some Jethro Tull-ish licks, and a positive attitude. My favorite cut is "Loser, Loser", and it's the lyrics that do it to me... the band appears around the region."
