This one looks really interesting and incredibly obscure; is it a private pressing? Thankyou!

This lives up to some pretty high standards. Great vibes. Awesome lyrics. Drumming = hot. Bass = tight. Hammond is out of control. Did any of these guys ever play on another rec after this? THANKS!

My husband was in this band (guitar). The album was recorded in one day with vocals the second day. It could have been better if they had more time to track it and use their own equipment. They had to use cheesy studio amps. It was a limited press and was never released. He has an unopened album, along with about 15 45's of the single plus two band promo pix. We are thinking about listing on eBay.

This really IS a VERY RARE album. The music on the album is live - it is the engineer's recording and unmastered - these musicians were THAT GOOD!

The album is a true anomaly - it was only partially completed when it was pressed and released; the second side was not finished. It is not clear how many copies were actually produced - rumor is only about 1000-1200.

There are also a couple of very rare "Micah" promo pictures of the members of the band which may or may not have been included when the album was released.

Gary Taylor Ohlson who played the ripping Hammond B3 organ on this album is most definitely still playing and composing. He can be on MySpace, Facebook and Reverbnation:

Information on when Gary Taylor Ohlson and Martin Horne played in the Hardstone Farm Band is available on Facebook.

Micah was a phenominal band with pure raging talent and way ahead of other groups in the progressive rock arena at the time.
