"This album of Charles Manson songs was recorded by The Manson Family as the 1970 murder trial was ongoing. Recorded in the Spahn Ranch saloon, some songs contain references to the unfolding events in the trial. "Get On home" contains a direct reference to the defendants carving an 'X' onto their foreheads :

"When you see the children with X's on their head, if you dare to look at them, soon you will be dead."

Originally a private press release as "Manson Family Sings the Songs of Charles Manson" on vinyl and limited to 999 copies. This reissue from 1997 was released simultaneously on Transparency and Aurora Records and has the original album remastered on disc 1 and outtakes and alternate versions on disc 2."
