    Kudos to Light in the Attic for releasing this lost classic. I first heard this lovely music from the small label Lucky 7's CD release. It always seemed too obscure to get a proper vinyl release.

    But here in 2016, 47 years after this album was initially recorded, a stunning, sonically impressive vinyl release from the Light in the Attic label has been released.

    The pressing is dead quiet which is welcomed in the soft passages. Another highlight of this release is the hard bound packaging with William Eggleston photos and wonderful liner notes from Andria Lisle and brief comments from Terry Manning.

    Only complaint is it would have been nice to have a digital download of the album, too.
