"The 1974 follow up to their startling debut Stillpoint is another progressive rock gem, another chapter in the story of one of Australia's best bands of the seventies. This, their last LP (excepting their legendary 'lost' album Brave New World ...we're still searching...) again featured a striking cover from roadie/artist Drak and was lavishly packaged in a gatefold sleeve and insert (artwork faithfully created for this release). Musically, Butterfly Farm continues in the same 'psychedelic blues' vein as its predecessor and features the mighty 'Ride On Fast' along with some amusing adlibs (on the live at Sunbury version of 'Lizards') from singer Mick Fettes! We have added two subsequent non-LP singles and a live track from Sunbury and the Garrison as bonus tracks. The last six months have seen a triumphant return to the live scene from Madder Lake, who are rumored to be writing and recording new material for a projected follow up - 25 years later! This deluxe reissue has been remastered from the original master tapes by Gil Matthews, with a 24-page booklet filled with rare photos and liner notes from noted Australian rock aficionado Ian McFarlane. Four bonus tracks."
