Track times don't appear on release (manually clocked).
Track 13 & 14 are bonus tracks.
Excellent private press folk LP assembled by the former leader of Elizabeth (Vanguard label psych band) and some friends in a Philadelphia studio (I wonder if he knew Perry Leopold?). This is the original demo version of the LP, issued in a plain cover that Bob autographed in the upper left corner. It was apparently reissued a year or so later with a proper printed cover. Most of the tracks have multiple layered guitars, and eight of the twelve songs have vocals. My pick is the doomy "Darlin' Good Girl" which sounds like the Richard Farina classic "The Bold Marauder" to my ears. A killer little-known gem, if you collect private folk LPs from this era you'll be hard-pressed to top this one for quality and obscurity. I'm sure this demo version is as rare as Leopold's Experiment In Metaphysics LP!
