Thanks ge for the technical details of this album ... it's a pretty cool record.
They lose points for excessive hair & sane seriousness however! ...but gain some back for having a cover photolandscape just like we got here
Interestingly, I've discovered they released two versions of the single "Shame The Children". First issued in 1971 on a Columbia DJ mono/stereo promo #4-45482 (production NOT credited to Matthew Fisher, but only to Joel Sill). Then issued again in 1972 on a Columbia mono/stereo DJ promo #4-45645 but this time production is credited to both Sill & Fisher. Timing on the later issue is one second longer 3:17. Listened briefly to both but cannot tell if they are definitely different mixes and not knowing the song well enough I couldn't spot glaring differences, but I'd bet they are different.
