Editor's note: I love this cover! If only a gigantic wurlitzer could replace the Detroit skyline and the shout of organ music overtook the dire dirge of degradation. What an effin' world it would be, eh? Quit dreaming sappy suckas and tune in beyond the dreamscape to a world of dreamy sound. Ann Leaf's version of "Take Five" was a pleasant surprise in that I hadn't recognized the very recognizable tune by title alone. You can rarely go wrong with organ music (unless it's that butcher Virgil Fox!).

12-2-2010 PS...I just received an e-mail today that the DTOC actually uncovered some new copies of this album in storage and have made them available to the public. Go here to buy one. Oh yeah, the rest of the site is pretty cool too!
