Cauldron was released in 1968 on Mercury’s jazz-subsidiary Limelight. The album features eight proper songs plus three Marcheschi interludes, which link the four Blossom tracks on side one: “If Not This Time,” “The Things That Concern You,” “Red the Sign Post,” and “Rose.” Side two is book-ended by Blossom’s 10-minute “Fantasy” and the group-composed title-track. Sessions took place at Columbus Recorders, San Francisco, with production work by Dan Healy, who subsequently oversaw various Quicksilver, Grateful Dead, and Round Records projects.
