I picked this up during the early/mid 80's while visiting a vinyl trade show in Oregon. Recordings made by the band in 1979, and released independently by Kit Watkins on his own short lived 'Azimuth' label in 1983. On the back cover of the LP, the credits are as follows;

"This is the final tape made by Happy The Man. It was recorded February 1979 at the band house in Reston Virginia. Although this tape didn't land us a recording contract then, we still wanted to share it with you. So here it is - better late..."

Of the first three early Happy The Man studio albums, I've always preferred the 2nd release titled "Crafty Hands" overal. In my opinion, this final album "3rd - Better Late..." comes pretty close to that of either of its predecessors. If you own the first two, you need this as well.
