This wasn't a traditional session per se but a rough mix of songs recorded at the band's reunion concerts at London's Bloomsbury Theatre on the 17th and 18th of August The Incredible String Band.

At this time most of the group lived communally at a farmhouse near Newport , in Pembrokeshire , Wales, where they developed ideas for mixed media experiments with Malcolm Le Maistre and other members of David Medalla 's Exploding Galaxy troupe and the Leonard Halliwell Quartet.
Originally planned for BBC TV's arts programme Omnibus , it featured documentary footage and a fantasy sequence, 'The Pirate and the Crystal Ball', illustrating their attempt at an idyllic communal lifestyle. It made little impact at the time, but reissues on video and DVD have contributed to the recent revival of interest in the band. The band toured for much of , in the US and the UK. However, the band refused to perform in the pouring rain, so stage manager John Morris rescheduled their performance for the following day.
Their open slot was taken by Melanie , whose showing inspired her song, "Lay Down Candles in the Rain ". The crowd was not anticipating the band's performance on a day that featured mainly hard rock acts. In November, they released the album Changing Horses , which was generally seen as a disappointment after their earlier work.
By late , they had established a communal base at Glen Row near Innerleithen , and the relationships between Mike and Rose and between Robin and Licorice had ended.
In April they released the album I Looked Up. The ISB's performances were more theatrical than those of most of their contemporaries. In addition to the spectacle of their exotic instruments and colourful stage costumes, their concerts sometimes featured poems, surreal sketches and dancers, all in the homegrown, non-showbiz style characteristic of the hippie era.
In , Robin Williamson with little input from Heron attempted to fuse the music with his theatrical fantasies in a quixotic multimedia spectacular at London's Roundhouse called "U", which he envisaged as "a surreal parable in dance and song".
It combined the band's music with dancing by the Stone Monkey troupe which had evolved out of Exploding Galaxy , the letter U representing a transition from a high level of spiritual awareness to a low, then returning to a final peak of awareness and communication. Although the performance was ambitious, critical response was mixed, with some harsh reviews from critics who had in some cases acclaimed their earlier work. Joe Boyd described the show as "a disaster". After that the group lasted another four years, although there was a gradual decline in their status and commercial success after Joe Boyd, whose skillful handling of the band had contributed much to their international success, stopped managing them and returned to the US.
The group left Elektra Records and signed with Island , for whom they recorded five albums. The first was a soundtrack to the "Be Glad The band continued to tour and record. The following year, Licorice left, and was replaced by Gerard Dott , an Edinburgh jazz musician and friend of both Heron and Williamson who had contributed to Smiling Men.
