1968 US LP Shamley SS701

The full credit says "'Merrell Fankhauser and (His Trusty) H.M.S. Bounty - Whoopee - A Heart Warmin' Lip-Lickin' Foot-Stompin' Mind-Blowin' Pulse-Poundin' Hip-Swingin' Mother Of A Super New Album Called THINGS!"

One of the real collectors' items, considered a lost psychedelic gem with copies exchanging hands for several hundred dollars. Although still collectable the price has steadied with the availability of a compact disc version.

I wonder how many people carried this album around without realising what the picture was on the front cover?
