Description from Acid Archives:
Here's a private pressing of folk and folk-rock gently laced with early influences of psychedelia.  For a 17 year-old high school kid, David Budin was already a skilled singer-songwriter and accomplished musician.  His guitar playing is imaginative and stylistically diverse, and with band backing of drums, bass, flute & piano, this stands out as a special record for the era.  All 13 tracks are originals except an impressive Beatles cover.  A sort of evolutionary morphing of old and new seems to be the impetus behind Budin's songwriting.  A few songs reflect mid-'60s coffeehouse folk, except with an electric guitar, and lyrics about promising hippie love instead of bitter activist subjects.  Alongside Budin's guitar arrangements, a flute has most of the lead instrumental parts, in a style between late '50s beatnik poetry night and a quaint jazz club and happy hippy flute sounds from the long-haired dude in period minstrel garb at a public park gathering.  One of the stronger loner songs from the album is the vagabond tune, "A Whispered Echo", with just Budin singing a weary song that comes across as a string of coherent thoughts while playing acoustic guitar with a constant rhythmic finger noodling technique.  Another memorable song, "Beauty Isn't Always Seen", consist of rhythm acoustic guitar, lead hipster flute and hallucinatory lyrics about real versus superficial beauty.  The record came about to promote the grand opening of the Red Lyon, a coffeehouse in upstate New York.  Budin later moved to the eastcoast and joined Gift, and influential NJ band that became Springsteen's E Street Band.
