In the vein of introspective, political, moody, sparse folk psychedelia, and this is a true slow leak album, that will grow on you year after year. It was only released in the vicinity of London Ontario, and very few possible music stores in Canada outside Ontario or distributed by hand by Winston where he played. On the small indie label Ergo. Virtually unknown for this material in his own city of London Ontario, he played the coffee house circuit and bars in this time period, this is a stone classic, and very important document of Canadian music. Every song is good, all self penned on the LP and is timeless. On many collectors lists and featured in important documents on scarce psychedelia/folk. Fragile psychy folkrock with a dreamy garage feel, spacey organ, gentle vocals, and mostly acoustic guitar with occasional electric outbursts. Winston has passed away and this represents his first LP.
