Sky aka Sky Sulamyth also put out an album called "Full Moon Light" around '78 thats pretty trippy.
There is also another Huckle album called "Upon A Once Time" quite a bit rarer & harder to find.
Huckle and friends were regulars around Western Canada in the 70's playing festivals and folk gatherings, not to sure where most of them are now........

Canadian Hippie Folk from 1976. Excellent music for the road, this rare and hard to find album is a perfect example of folk and rock made by a bunch of hippies in the seventies. The words are of love and tolerance, and free life and travelling, while the music suites the words well and transcends all of their messages flawlessly. Acoustic guitar and haunting fiddle, tablas and vocal harmonies of great and natural honesty of happiness from both the male and the female parts, it is one of the best albums I have heard in quite a while and it holds a strong place in my music collection. A must have classic!

I think this is superb. The 'amateur' recording [vocals a little in the background at times etc.] add to the charm, but excellent harmonies and great acoustic guitar. I mean this is really good; one of the best shares I've had the pleasure to listen to in a long time, and out of way too many! Thank you. MF

I have a copy of Once Upon a Time, but have never got around to ripping it to CD/MP3. I new it was rare, but I didn't realize it was known/collectable. I won't be posting it at The Basement Rug, as downloads are available from the artist at hucklesownhomepage.com.
