Lisa - will you marry me???

I had two Michal Urbaniak albums and three Urszula albums and all five were stolen - out of a locked cabinet at work! - when I took them there to photocopy the covers (this was pre-personal computer/scanner days) in the Seventies.
Since none are easily available on CD - this is maaaahvelous.

Thanks 22 million, four-hundred and seven thousan, six-hundred and thirty-six times, o beautiful Lisa!!!

Notes: A lot of mosquito-related songs. Urbaniak arranged the songs, but only plays on one track. On the cover notes, Urszula calls the Lyricon "the most humanized electronic instrument to date". Track 8 is spelt with a "v", instead of a "w", for reasons unexplained.
(Supposedly referred to Josef Zawinul of Weather Report, Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderly, etc.)
Never released on CD.
