Exact repro reissue of this Austin, TX band's 1969 debut LP. "Shiva's Headband landed a recording contract with Capitol Records on the strength of their popular live shows, only to decamp to San Francisco and see things go completely awry. Although the band hated San Francisco, their position as an influential member of the psychedelic fraternity dictated that they remain there, and until the release of Take Me ToThe Mountains, their first and only release for Capitol, this is exactly what they did. Perskin's powerful fiddle playing is prominent throughout the album. Critics agree that their first effort, often described as a well-balanced blend of country and psychedelia, augmented by Spencer's fabulous fiddle playing, should have been far more successful than it was. A fine album."
