Masque design by Ely Ramen, general assistance by Bob Dunham, and photography by Peter Moore. "Why is sex a predominant theme in art and literature prohibited ONLY in music? How long can New Music afford to be sixty years behind the times and still claim to be a serious art? The purge of sex under the excuse of being 'serious' exactly undermines the so-called 'seriousness' of music as a classical art, ranking with literature and painting. Music needs its D. H. Lawrence its Sigmund Freud." -- from flyer's text.
