review style notes removed from the submission written by mahatma57:

The Farm is an intentional community in Lewis County, Tennessee, near the town of Summertown, Tennessee, based on principles of nonviolence and respect for the Earth.
It was founded in 1971 by Stephen Gaskin and 320 San Francisco hippies; The Farm is well known amongst hippies and other members of similar subcultures as well as by many vegetarians.
They maintained The Farm Band, a rock group in the early Jam Band genre, which toured the country performing for free at parks, schools, churches, and other accessible venues.
Albums included 'The Farm Band' on Million Records, 'Up in Your Thing','High On the Rim of the Nashville Basin' and 'Communion'; issued on Farm Tapes and Records. These were self-produced and distributed. Mantra Records and Akarma Records later.
This is a second album by the farm community: a perfect hippie combo that lies somewhere between the Grateful Dead and Jethro Tull, performing long psycho blues suites with flute and violin solos.
