Art of the Cover - The Free Design's "Sing for Very Important People " (1970)

Great artwork adorns this wonderful collection of lush harmony sunshine pop.

A truly influential album.

The recent digitally-remastered reissue of the Free Design's 1970 album adds two previously unreleased bonus jingles recorded for a Chapstick commercial - 'For The Love Of Your Lips' (outtake 1 and 2). 

The collection includes a deluxe color booklet.  

The band's fifth album was a children's album, inspired in part by Peter, Paul and Mary's album Peter, Paul and Mommy of the previous year.

...Sing for Very Important People included a combination of original songs, covers, and a number of songs that had appeared on the band's previous albums: "Bubbles", "Daniel Dolphin" and "Kites Are Fun". 

"Little Cowboy" was written by Art Dedrick, father of most of the band's members. 

The song "Love You" began to achieve increased popularity a few years back when it was used in the closing credits of the film Stranger than Fiction and later used in many different commercials,
