New, old stock. 1982 33 1/3 RPM record album by David Foster featuring all original caving compositions. The Richmond Area Speleological Society gave Foster a grant for an entire album of folk songs about caves. He wrote and recorded Nylon Highway, the name coming from the nylon ropes used to traverse caverns. The songs dealt with themes of the beauty and fragility of caves and how man destroys them through direct acts (like graffiti and breaking off pieces of formations) and indirect acts such as pollution that seeps underground. There were some interesting story songs on the album. "The Green Duck Song" is a true story about a die trace that turned a woman's pond green and all her ducks, while "The Ballad of Wilson's John" is about an outhouse belonging to a John Wilson. Nylon Highway was popular with cavers and sold around the country through cave organization publications and meetings.
