Editor's note: if you came to hear the Canadian Brass then you'll have to come back next year because I found this one yesterday at a thrift store and it trumps any damned brass band from the north. By today's standards this is a pretty tame effort but considering that this beast was put out in 1968 it is a monumental recording. Not electronica like we know it and mostly that's a good thing. Not so fortuitous is the newspaper clipping glued to the front sleeve, interesting as it may be.
