CD cover designed by Zacron (1943-2012) RIP - www.zacron.com

This is TFC's first serious piece of work. An experimental jam session recorded prior to the recording of this album was put on a CD entitled We Are Born. This album features Jaki Alden on flute and mandolin as a guest musician. This album will soon be available on iTunes.

Inscape - Special Edition - celebrates Zacron's life work and features a full length version of Woodland Green.

Zacron is best known for designing the iconic Led Zeppelin III album cover for his friend Jimmy Page in 1973. This album cover is part of a vast and varied body of work by Zacron spanning five decades. He's done the same thing for his friend Rogerio Ferreira regarding TFC's Inscape album cover.
