Yes, this is similar to the LP cover I have.  Your's is the original cover used for the San Francisco Sound reissue.

This is the original 1970 CBS Vinyl LP cover.

Upon further investigation, the cover used in the song listing is from European reissues of the 1980's.  Don't know where the artwork originated from.  It was used for awhile and then reverted to the original.

Yeah, never thought that, but definitely.  And then there is DP's Child In Time and Bombay Calling from IABD's first album.  Always did wonder about those two.

Nonetheless love these four songs by both artists.

Ah yes...every generation likes to think their young adult years...and even NOT so young adult years (heh), were some sort of special.  Stand back away from that self-centered indulgent thinking and you can see they're....not?  It's all just a point of view.  Add the benefit of some time and the point of view equalizes out along the line of your mature women.  {#Cheers} Time is the great leveler of each and every one of us.  But even so every generation has certain moments that define them, for better and, god help us, for worse.  The best of those times is reflected in music like this.  And reflected in other fashions, too. 

Sociological forces powered by the unfettered mind of a large cohort of young people did change society in fundamental sense(you can read into THAT statement anything you like - heh).  From technological developments you even now reap the benefits of, to the less technologically elegant and hideous styles of (disco) clothing, ethics and thought, some of which thank god were relegated to the trash can.  There were some things brewing back then, especially in politics.  I've seen those forces burble up from time to time ever since that era.  It's always surprising, sometimes better and other times not so much.  Regardless, they're always motivating.  And almost always the forces emerge from the province of the young.  It's a good thing, too.  Imagine a society dominated by an ossified elderly mind closed off to those energizing forces.  Why....then you'd have....Trump?  

And here's the irony for my generation.  If the Clintonistas were a reflection of our generations (purported) best instincts the Great Liar (as I call Trump) represents the worst of our carnal Huge Hefner playboy corporate aspirations.  Yin/Yang.  And life rolls regardless.

Sorry for being long-winded...

DUUUUUUUUDE! Thanks for motivating me to get off my ass, put on my glasses, and find this incredible LP that had gone missing on my stax-o'-wax!

Evidently it has sat for some years misfiled under the name "Marrying Maiden" when it correctly belongs snuggled up with, as it were, my Incredible String Band LP's, in the "i'" section right between Isaac Hayes and The J Geils Band, keeping the world in its eternal balance of yin and yang. Somewhere in this Bearcave there's a copy of It's A Beautiful Day, their eponymous first album too that's eluding capture... 
 
Those and David LaFlamme's  solo "White Bird" LP make a tasty sam'wich of early psychedelia that're just good enough to eat!

Once saw this band open up for Nazareth. 

They started with "white bird" song and were pretty much got booed off stage.

Those "mature" women weren't the philosophical types...
Yeah, think about it. THE PILL was the revolution.
What type of woman has 4, 5, 6+ kids these days. Nasty, politically incorrect comment could follow but I don't want to stray from the music forum.
