Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
With a title and front cover like this, one would expect 1968's Music for Yoga Meditation and Other Joys to have come out on an obscure San Francisco label run out of the back room of a natural foods store and feature amateurish players no one had ever heard of before or since.
