Notes

Warm earth music for plants...
and the people who love them

Recorded in stereo at Patchcord Productions
Hollywood, California

Includes Mother Earth's Indoor Plant Care Booklet

The album had a very limited distribution upon release, only being available to people who bought a houseplant from a store called Mother Earth in Los Angeles or those who purchased a Simmons mattress from a Sears outlet, both of which came with the record.

      So are any digital versions upgraded from the new master tapes they used or just the vinyl?

        My copy has a "SIDE ONE" label on both sides (the vinyl itself is stamped correctly though), is that a known variation?

          very expensive to get ahold of (i paid around $140 on eBay getting lucky with an auction, no booklet) but if you can get ahold of it i HIGHLY recommend it, as good as the remaster is for what they had this one sounds way more 3-D

            The album had a fairly limited distribution upon release, some examples being available to people who bought a houseplant from a store called Mother Earth in Los Angeles or those who purchased a Simmons mattress from a Sears outlet and select book stores where one could also find the book along side the record. It may have also been available in other outlets.

              For people wanting to get this album, get the 1976 original. It's expensive but it sounds much better than the reissue. Take it from someone who used to have the 1976 copy for the sole purpose to digitally transfer it properly.

                No worries to archivist down below, I bought mine at 200$ mint sealed here on discogs. I love nothing more than opening old shrink on great sounding records. I have both re-issues and have them for sale. One is just a rip of this, the original lp. And the second is a proper re-issue, however the tracks are spread very thin on two discs, requiring you to get up every two songs or so, and Plantasia doesn't exactly contain long epic songs, more short bright compositions.. always if you can, go for the original.

                  got a mint copy of this for 170 on eBay, pretty much worth it IMO but might grab a repress since I'm pretty anxious about playing the original, maybe in like five years ill sell it.
