This is the second installment from two cassettes featuring the CMIF, I've received some years ago.
The first one I've reupped two days ago.
And off course there is also the only official LP this cluster of musicians has ever released.
I got these cassettes from a dear colleague who got it from Bobby Naughton sometime during the seventies.

all text found on the cassette and handwritten insert except [...] and no timings were given -
on CD2 tracking is a bit uncertain for track 4. Probably the last few seconds on the cassette/CD are the incomplete "Blue Rose".
