So, I was in Central Park on holiday from the UK in 72. I was 11 and my sister was 15. These hairy guys came up and started chatting her up. They moved on but not before giving her a copy of this album. They were giving them away! It was played to death and whilst I still have it, I'm searching for a digital copy or at least something less scratchy. I could pay good money for a complete recording... Any chance of getting it?
