Paul Beaver and Bernie Krause were among the first wave of electronic music musicians. Upon purchasing one of Bob Moog's new synthesizers they were the catalysts who introduced a generation of artists to this instrument by demonstrating it at the Monterey Pop Festival. Paul Beaver performed an early synthesizer solo on the Monkees' "Star Collector" in 1967.

This track comes from the last of their five albums, "All Good Men", released in 1972. Although it was the weakest of their three Warner Bros. albums, it contained "Legend Days Are Over" which wove the human voice of a Native American through the piece like a percussive instrument. Nine years later Brian Eno and David Byrne would take this idea and turn it into a full album, "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts". Unlike Beaver and Krause, their work did not retain the speakers' narratives.
