The Adventures of Kaptain Kopter & Commander Cassidy in Potato Land was originally recorded by Randy California and Ed Cassidy during the 1973/74 hiatus period of Spirit. A concept album of sorts, interspersed with dialogue, it was only released in skeletal form in 1981 through Line Records. A reworked and fuller version, still somewhat erroneously credited to Spirit, was released in 2006 and remains available as The Original Potato Land.
