Numbered edition of 500, glossy heavy sleeve on 180 gram vinyl with insert. Originally released in South Africa, 1969. "It was a long search to locate the rights for this album since it was not with EMI anymore. With the help of musicians and producers from The Third Eye and Freedom's Children, we've found the original producer. He told us that the brother/sister band John & Philipa Cooper went to Britain shortly after the album was made and there it lost track. This amazing album has the same class as Billy Nichols, Duncan Browne and Blossom Toes. Many other musicians from S.A. were helping out. Every track is just great. Well composed underground songs, folk rock, effects, pop tunes just the right mixture for an album full of ideas and masterfully played. Perhaps one of the rarest albums from S.A. This album would have been a great success if it was produced in UK. It just has the right feel with the combination of great songs with a '60s art-vibe. Female / male vocals, Julian Laxton on guitar, keyboards; beside Jon & Philipa, 8 more musicians on the album. This LP is just a perfect 1969 underground folk-rock album."
