This really IS a VERY RARE album. The music on the album is live - it is the engineer's recording and unmastered - these musicians were THAT GOOD!

The album is a true anomaly - it was only partially completed when it was pressed and released; the second side was not finished. It is not clear how many copies were actually produced - rumor is only about 1000-1200.

There are also a couple of very rare "Micah" promo pictures of the members of the band which may or may not have been included when the album was released.

Gary Taylor Ohlson who played the ripping Hammond B3 organ on this album is most definitely still playing and composing. He can be on MySpace, Facebook and Reverbnation:

Information on when Gary Taylor Ohlson and Martin Horne played in the Hardstone Farm Band is available on Facebook.

Micah was a phenominal band with pure raging talent and way ahead of other groups in the progressive rock arena at the time.
