"Legit reissue with mini-LP style packaging; includes 5 bonus tracks. "First incarnation of the legendary Japanese hard prog psych rock act Flower Travellin Band. Debut album by Yuya Uchida & The Flowers which was started by Yuya Uchida (born on 17 November 1939) who already was making some rockabilly singles in the early 60s and was one of the opening performers when The Beatles came to Japan in 1966. But when he traveled to Europe in 1967, he was immediately inspired by Cream, Jimi Hendrix and The Who. When he returned to Japan, he started the band The Flowers with vocalist Remi Aso, and the band caused a sensation in the Japanese music scene. Most of the tracks on this album are covers of songs by Cream, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, and one original song." - Columbia.
