1968

One fine space age album by Buddy Merrill, one of Lawernce Welk's guitarists (1955-1974) and highly-sought after studio musician. The set was produced using 14 guitars. Arrangements are bright light pop with a touch of fuzz effect on a few tracks to help add some spice.

The second image is a full page photo of Merrill found inside the gatefold cover.
