Liner Notes: Very much in the school of heavy psych with ripping wah-wah fuzz and wasted stoned vocals this album is finally housed in the psych packaging it requires. The vinyl is a 10" mini album format and the CD is in a mini gatefold LP sleeve (this is a short album at just over 21 minutes). Originally recorded in 1970 as a one sided acetate. A very few were sold.
