After his stint with Fapardokly, HMS Bounty and MU, Merrell Fankauser released his first solo album in 1976. Comprised of songs written a year earlier while Merrell and violin player Mary Lee were living in the jungle of Maui, this is a brilliant set of spiritual folk- rock and 70s orchestrated SSW light- pop.

The album was recorded at various Hollywood studios, initially sponsored by a producer from George Harrison's Dark Horse label. In fact Harrison was so impressed with Merrell's songs that he expressed interest in playing slide guitar on "Our Way To Hana". Sadly, due to internal problems, Dark Horse backed off and Merrell found himself without a label to release the album. Finally, a couple of friends from Maui released it on the small Maui Music label. On the recordings, Merrell and Mary Lee were joined by several studio musicians, among them, drummer Bill Berg, who had played on Bob Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks".

First ever vinyl reissue with tracks restored to their original running order and original artwork.

Insert with in- depth liner notes by Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost), presenting the most complete written story about Merrell's musical career.

Master tape sound.

"... It stands as a lost classic in Fankhauser's prolific catalog of work." - Jeremy Cargill (Ugly Things, Got Kinda Lost)

"…Great melodic '70s psych. Merrell is joined by female violinist Mary Lee; she also was part of the earlier MU scene and lived with Merrell in a Maui jungle hut…" - - Patrick Lundborg (Acid Archives)

"A classic of cosmic folk music" - Forced exposure
