An extremely rare privately-pressed album, although this one was pressed in relatively large quantities (2,000) and most were accompanied by a lyric sheet. It was another hippie-type commune project similar to Everyone Involved, but the folk material on the album owed as much to Bob Dylan as to The Incredible String Band. It included the 17-minute epic, "Ghost Of Emile Zola".
