    In 1969 Liberty Records distributed their records themselves. In 1970 they went to EMI Electrola for distributing. A nice collection but more Blues and Blues Rock than Prog Rock.

    Art direction by Gabor Halmos, with illustration by Roger Chouinard.

    1. I wonder if the cover design was intended as a nod to Milton Glaser’s famous Simon & Garfunkel poster from 1966. The illustration of the musicians on stage looks a bit like a more dynamic version, seen from a worm’s-eye view, with the (almost) faceless guitar player and their instrument also shown in outline. Furthermore, Buxom is a copy of Glaser’s Baby Fat typeface which was put to early use on the concert poster.
