Notes

Department of TV/Radio/Films-The American Lutheran Church-1568 Eustis, St. Paul, Minn. is printed on the labels.

Courtesy Lutheran Council, 450th Reformation Committee is printed inside the gate-fold jacket.

Inside cover states Pastor John Rydgren wrote all the narratives except for three. There are no clear credits inside the cover as to who wrote what. Tracks A4 and B1 were said to be written by "a kind of hippie DJ" at Rydren's request in the notes, but no clear credit is given. C4 is a montage with no narrative.
The catalog number is taken from the matrix numbers. It is also printed on each side with the corresponding side letter after it, like the matrix/runout, but with no dash or space between the last number and the letter.

Interesting blog about it (and I can attest, it's strange and weird and cringy and religious, but also kinda really good? So odd):

Lost 1968 masterpiece from USA. Incredible hip and over the top recordings with a weird twist. In style of Ken Nordine, narrated by John Rygden, but backed by super GROOVY music, sound effects, cut-ups...An incredible Journey to Hipsville...Good to hear a clergyman not taking himself too seriously. This is absolutely marvelous. DJ's, radio stations, sampling maniacs and 60's fans should take notice. One of my most out there records!
