One of the best of the prison recordings of Charles Manson. This one was put out in 1994 in honor of Manson's 60th birthday and includes some truly beautiful songs like "Peace In Your Heart" and "Hank Williams". Recorded at Vacaville in the early 80's, it features some really neat improvs and a spoken word introduction. I often have wondered if Roky Erickson was familiar with Charlie's music, the way he strings together so many words in a phrase and still makes them fit in the songs, I can't help but think he was an influence.
