    My friend is a record dealer and he bought two boxes with maybe a total of 100 similar discs, all different titles. He told me to choose one and I took the one off the top. I was in the Philippines in the early 70s and we could buy similar things but couldn't ship them home, of course. THe big thing then was bootleg tapes, mostly cassettes and 8 tracks. I never bought one but heard a few and they all sounded like they had been recorded on a portable. Total junk, to be sure.

    Where were you in the Philippines? I was there on temp (TAD) assignment May-June 1971 at a place called Navy Communications Station San Miguel, San Antonio, Zambales Province. Right on the South China Sea about 45 minutes north of Subic Bay. Beautiful place, did a lot of snorkeling in a cove at Capones Island and drank my share of San Miguel beer.

    Absolutely one of my favorite old bands. I have Ball, Heavy , Vida and Live on original (I think) vinyl and Metamorphosis on disc. As well as having seen them MANY times, albeit in the 80’s and 90’s. Wish I could actually remember. o_O

    Excellent! When this album came out in the summer of '68 it was a stunner, a huge stepping stone in the psychedelic era. I still dig it a half century on.
