The single, a “Radha Krishna Temple Los Angeles” production, came out in 1975 and features vocals by Agnidev (side A) and Mangalananda (side B). The LP came out in 1973, and again in 1975, featuring Srila Prabhupada, who sings, plays harmonium and kartals.

Eric Swanger points out that most of the 1970’s Hare Krishna albums were produced in Europe. This one, however, was produced by Golden Avatar out of Los Angeles, and borrowed the name of the earlier (1969) and more famous “Radha Krishna Temple” featuring George Harrison. After this record was released, Golden Avatar went on to focus mostly on producing cassette tapes.
