This is one tremendous GEM of a compilation LP from the early '70s.
Take a gander at the back cover for the featured artists.
Really wish I knew who did this album design and artwork.
There is a signature below the merfox on the front cover, but I can't make it out.
UPDATE - 8 August 2012:
An Anonymous commenter provided some album credit information on 6 July 2012,
which I have confirmed with other sources, too;
and added the Album Design credit as well.
Cover Art: Alex Eben
Creative Direction: Larry Shaw / Ron Gordon
Album Design: Ron Canagata
Art Direction: Davis Fried Krieger
This LP traveled to a discerning buyer in France.
