Recorded at Rosenberg Studios, Copenhagen in November 1973.

Printed inner sleeve with lyrics.

The sleeve carries the following verse :
While storm clouds gathered high above
The Heroine he grew to love
Turned slowly to a snow white dove
And spread her wings to fly
Crushed and broken in the end
Hero watched his soul ascend
Knowing that he was condemned
To sail all alone to die
