Produced by Richie Havens (who also contributes on sitar), this lost classic was recorded in New york in 1970. Featuring Canadian musicians Fran Losier, Gilles Losier and Jean Cousineau, as well as leading jazz flautist Jeremy Steig, psych-folk legend Buzz Linhart and the Carolyn Hester Coalition's Skeeter Camera, it's a mesmerising collection of jazzy folk-psych. Packed with glorious vocal harmonies and unforgettable melodies (culminating in spellbinding acid folk masterpiece 'Infinity'), it makes it's long-overdue debut here.
