This session was the first that Blaine, Knechtel and Osborn all played on together. The group recorded and performed from 1965 to 1968 with a short reunion in 1971, releasing six albums and 11 Top 40 hit singles. This one however, is on the one 4-track that Joe gave to me.

It had both albums and the booklet, all in good shape. The second verse could very well relate to the whacko new-age religious cults that had formed in California during the 60s and 70s, where people joined and never returned to their normal lives.
