The original audio fusion track "Cantaloupe Island" was recorded during a live party gig at Rivendell, Upper Thora and was only picked up through one SM58 vocal mike. It is the raw live sound, no production, engineering or anything. It was recorded on a VHS recorder, so the sound quality isn't great, but you can hear enough to get an idea. The three piece band is guitarist/vocals Peter Dodd, me on drums and Karin Braidwood on bass.
