This contraband album, undertitled "Visions through a window", was first released together with the alias EP.  It was then released alone, with the same cover (68A) it was reissued in 1976 with various record labels including 'Instant analysis'.  This (68 B) album is exactly the same as (68 A), except the insert on the cover was enlarged. Side one from this album was actually recorded at the Finjan club in Montreal, June 1962 and not at the gaslight; all tracks good quality.  Side two has six songs from the gaslight, fairly good quality, except "Hard rain" (very Poor).  All tracks are much better on "Ode for Barbara Allen".
