Japanese-only CD edition of the lone album (at the time) from 1971 by this TX group -- 200 copies pressed, recently reissued in very limited form on LP by Destijl. This P-Vine CD comes w/ 7 bonus tracks (from the same sessions?) released for the first time. Immaculate mini-LP jacket packaging, with booklet of liner notes (Japanese) and lyrics (English/Japanese). Heavy. Destijl's description of the album: "Exact / legit repro of an unbelievably / unassumingly great / rare rec from TX, circa '71. 4 kids (one chick fatale) stoned / alone and aware of the big things. Tempted, yet devoted only to the shaft of light extending from the loin of god, on which we will all eventually sit, that slowly rises and lifts us towards the heavens... for the fan of gripped mind / dropped jaws, this is the regal beagle; austere / smart / aware vibes that slowly imply the king of American folk privates. It's connection within the deep tim'bre of the private / psych / folk family tree of references is hazy, but perhaps the dropped names of Arthur Lee Harper, Pete Fine, Fenner / Leland / O'Brien, Timmothy, the Bachs will work for the astute customer."
