Original 1970 Danish pressed Capitol label 12-track LP - California sunshine pop groups stylistically diverse 15th studio album - labelled "a pastiche of singles and leftover fragments of past projects (including the Smile album)" by Allmusics Bruce Eder who writes: "...radiant psychedelia like "Cabinessence" is juxtaposed with elements of '50s rock & roll ("Bluebirds Over the Mountain"), folk songs adapted to the group's style ("Cotton Fields"), and a brush up against the dark side of the '60s, in the form of "Never Learn Not to Love," a byproduct of Dennis Wilson's brief contact with Charles Manson and company."
Vinyl has the generic green and black printed company labels with top purple and black 'target' logo.
Vinyl is held in an outer laminated unipak cover fabricated in Germany.
The combination of Danish manufactured vinyl and covers printed in the UK, Germany, Sweden or Norway were quite common during the 1960ies and 70ies.
