Notes

Recorded May, July 1974 and Remixed August 1974 at Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California.

Cover reports: - "Just Wanto To Be Here" is basically an improvisation by Flora and the musicians listed as co-composers, but also makes brief use of the words and music of the Brazilian song "Saiuba, Saiuba" by Jorge Ben.
Flora's lyrics for "Stories To Tell" include some titles and phrases from Neville Potter's words for Chick Corea music; such songs, first performed by Flora when she was part of Chick's Return To Forever group, will always be a part of her musical "story", for which special thanks remain due to both those fine writers. -
