Fold-out sleeve with lyrics of Lady Rachel and Song For Insane Times

Thanks and praise to:
Robert Wyatt who played all drum tracks, except for B1 and B4, on which Rob Tait "did it" for a couple of tricky figures.
The Soft Machine for the backing on A5 - Mike Ratledge and Hugh Hopper individually.
David Bedford for creative assistance on instrumental, voicings and their arrangement (also for his groovy piano playing).
The Session Men.
Jean and Mary who had to sing in Malay - which is a fair achievement for two Scots girls.
The Engineer: Peter Mew.
Sean Murphy and Ian Knight. Finally, Peter Jenner, who provided a more than valuable smile and throughout, and Malcolm Jones and roy Featherstone of EMI who said Yes.

The inner sleeve carries a 'cereal box' advert for the infant Harvest stable of artistesComes in gatefold mini LP replica with obi & Japanese insert.

Track 14 & 15 are mono.CD reissue of album originally released on Harvest (SHVL 763) in December 1969. This is Kevin Ayers' debut solo album after leaving Soft Machine.
Track 5 features Soft Machine (Robert Wyatt, Hugh Hopper & Mike Ratledge) as the 'backing' group.
