Transcript of the liner notes:

Nay — Sweet Smoke is neither a new cigarette nor an invitation to smoke hashish. Sweet Smoke — originally Sweet Smoke of the Happy Plant Pipeful — is a new band with Michael Paris (Saxophone and Vocals), Andy Dershin (Bass Guitar), Marvin Kami-nowitz (Lead Guitar and Vocals), Jay Dorf-man (Drums, Percussion) and Steve Rosen-stein (Rhythm Guitar). It has become popular to pretend that each new group has a particular, individual sound, though they may sound like all the other bands. The particular quality of the Sweet Smoke is their instrumental perfection, the rhytmical versatility and the wealth of harmonic invention. The music of Sweet Smoke reveals tension and inner logic, and it is up-to-date.
