Slide guitar by Bill Homans.

Between the 1972 Presidential election and the breaking rains of the Watergate scandal, Vietnam veteran, Bill Homans and his brother, Peter recorded ten songs with a bunch of friends and financed a small print run in the hope of courting the attentions of a major label. It never happened.

The album was recently re-released on CD by German label, Normal Records, but is currently out of print as I understand it.

Illustrator uncredited: from the 1987 Abacus paperback edition of Stephen Wright's "Meditations in Green" (1983).

MERRY AIRBRAKES: A HAPPY SONG FOR HANOI from "Merry Airbrakes" LP (Normal) 1973 (US)
