Notes

Recorded in RCA Italiana Studios, Rome, Italy.
Subtitled "Improvisational mood music for modern dream extensions".

Made in U.S.A.

First released in Italy as MLDS 20243 in 1966.

This 1967 edition was released simultaneously in the US and Canada with the same cover, and in both mono and stereo.
For the North American edition, the cover was completely redone. The name of the group and titles were changed to match the psychedelic cover image. The back shows new song titles for each piece, but here the original Italian titles are still readable next to them in a small font as are the credits for the performers. Most of the back cover is taken up an article written by David Horowitz on the expanding influence making of money from things that were plentiful and cheap before. It is hard to tell if he in the psychedelic scene not understanding why this European avant-garde music was being put out, of if really knew the music and was disgusted at RCA decided to market it.
