from the back cover:
"The idea for Friendsound came to us when we were in the early stages of creating our first album.
We rounded up all our musician friends in the area and headed for the recording studio to have a musical free-for-all.
This was the first spontaneous jam session we ever staged. it was also the first time that we employed the control console as a musical instrument.
We would like to thank Ernie Altschuler, Joe Reisman and all our friends at RCA Records for their acceptance and encouragement in our musical explorations."

Psychedelic Rock, Experimental, Musique Concrète, Field it what you want...this is what Hendrix 3rd Stone from the Sun would have sounded like if it ever were made into a jam session theme album.

A1 & B1 seems to end after the word Quiet, a fun fact.
