2003 remastered reissue of this Finnish cult classic, originally released in 1972. This was Streng's second and final album before his death at the age of 26, and here his mystical psych-folk are blessed at times with more of a cosmic-jazz influence, with the presence of established figures such as Eero Koivistoinen on sax and Olli Ahvenlahti on keyboard. Sparse acoustic songs, piano ballads, and Finnish pop anthems make this a rare flicker of light spreading an otherworldly warmth to those fortunate enough to seek it out. This album directly inspired Fonal label-head Sami Sänpäkkilä's (Es) 2009 album Kesämaan Lapset. Includes 4 bonus tracks, all demo versions of album tracks.
