Produced by Lewis Merenstein. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Vanguard Studios in New York City, NY during late 1970. Engineered by Ron Johnsen. Lew had also co-produced John Cale's 1970 album "Vintage Violence," though is most famous for producing Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks" album in 1968. In addition to the guest appearance by John Cale, pianist Steve Loeb is also featured. The band's guitarist, Chris Aridas, quit soon after the release of the album and was replaced by Stan Penridge. Chelsea split up before recording the second album specified by their contract with Decca Records. Even though the album was not successful, it had wide distribution, being released in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and at least promotionally in Japan. The album received a 4-star rating in Billboard (1/23/71) and was likely released late that month or in early February.
