Extremely rare and crazy psych/experimental/jazz-rock artifact given out as a promotional item to visitors of the Toshiba Pavilion at the Expo 1970 in Osaka. Featuring the talents of Isao Tomita, Akira Ishikawa, and members of The Golden Cups, Helpful Soul, etc. Experimental psych, hippy poetry, weird orchestrations, electronic soundscapes, electric sitar, wild fuzz-wah guitar outbursts, heavy organ, electric piano solos, and more! A real hidden treasure of the classic Japanese scene.

  3. Great, thank you. Is that Greg Lake (ELP) singing the main song halfway through track 1 ? it really sounds like him.
