Charles Manson visited New York City in the early 60s with his guitar and his songs in a vain search for recognition. In Beverly Hills, famous musicians gave him their studio to produce this album. He has vocal backup from the women of the "family". During a stay in a San Francisco prison, he met a fellow inmate, and gave him the album to release. While Manson was being tried and convicted of participation in the murder spree, the government attempted to discredit the hippie movement by citing him as an example, hoping to defuse the rising tide of anger among the population over the war in Viet Nam.

Because his songs were considered musically and historically significant, this record was released briefly by ESP in 1974, and is now being reissued. All royalties are paid to the son of one of the victims, who obtained a judgment against Manson.

Press Quotes


"None of these songs are threatening or confrontational; the material is introspective folk-rock and soft rock." - Alex Henderson, All Music Guide

"There are moments of undeniable chilly beauty like the female acappella I'll Never Say Never To Always, but there is also some schmaltzy Vegas-styled hokum like Eyes of a Dreamer as well." - George Parsons, Dream Magazine
