The title is self-explanatory. Allmusic describes it as "an entertaining budget-line collection." Discogs describes it as "stoner rock." Mark is wondering why this Priority Records compilation is currently fetching top dollar on the secondary market.

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: Sadly, most of these lyrics remain relevant a half-century later. But when these songs were released, I was more into Billy Blastoff than protesting. Nevertheless, I sang One Tin Soldier at summer church camp more times than I care to remember.
