Four hippies go to India in the 1960's, stay for two years & then
return to the San Francisco Bay area & this would be the outcome.

With Peter Van Gelder (ex-Great Society) after the long trip to India. Cosmic sitar folk and psych, trippy female & male vocals, chanting in English and Hindu, lots of ethnic instruments. An early example of a genre that would become common during the 1970's.
The LP was picked up by UNI (73116) and re-released in 1971 with a new and less blatantly druggy cover. The UNI press is a good way to check out the LP cheap.
If the Mid-East vibe is your thing then don't miss out on this L.P. !
Well, when I first post this album, exactly one year before today...
