Song of the Marching Children was released in October 1971 and is the second album of this Dutch psych/prog/pop band. This is arguably their masterpiece, with a consistent style of symphonic progressive rock, while from the next album on the band would include pop music and other styles more and more.
The front cover has the band name in a laurel wreath (a reference to the lyrics of the title track). Both the band name and album title are in Fette Gotisch.
Some issues of the album have the colours inversed (black on yellow/gold), and for most CD releases, the band logo has been enlarged.
