Whoa!! We took a break from 1967, jumped back to the “start” of the San Francisco music scene in 1966, and now I’m shovelin’ some more 1967 at ya… It’s this freakin’ time change – I don’t know if it’s day or night, hot or cold, paper or plastic, window or aisle. Do NOT tell me you like DST because we can no longer be friends.

I gave a birthday nod to Arthur Lee of Love yesterday, and have since found this non-Fillmore poster, designed by Wilfred Weisser, in Al Capone’s vault. Love and the Doors were LA bands and knew each other well. Lee was instrumental in getting Elektra to sign the Doors. The two bands were scheduled for this concert, along with Canned Heat, on June 2, 1967 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. At the last minute, the Doors cancelled, but Canned Heat rose to the occasion and played “Refried Boogie” and “Goin’ Up the Country” a record 17 times to fill the time allotted for "Light My Fire"... cause, you know, it's long...

Thank you. I've been posting them off and on for awhile and should probably have another soon.

I lived through this and I still have the long reaching effects... but gone is the long hair, gone is the unforgettable music and gone are the hairy women's legs and underarms disguised as Cro-Magnon legs and underarms from the Paleolithic era.

Was busy yesterday with a dog show, but will try to catch up on the puzzles and comments today. Thanks mpp… I think "Little Red Book" has found a new home in my recently remodeled head. Nice for it to drop in for a visit, but I hope it moves soon. I think Quicksilver has made reservations for later today

And you, of tender years,
Can't know the fears that your elders grew by.
And so please help them with your youth.
They seek the truth before they can die.

Teach your parents well.
Their children's hell will slowly go by.
And feed them on your dreams.
The one they pick's the one you'll know by.

I think, in a way it was an American renaissance. A time when youth struggled out from under the control of the “Greatest” generation and insisted on new ways of looking at things : war, art, music, sex, love, education.
And hair, I left out hair.

They say if you remember the 60's, you weren't there (or something like that). The time and place seem magical to me, which I'm sure it wasn't, with the Vietnam war, Kent State, political assassinations. The people who lived through this had no idea of the long reaching effects. I often wonder how we'll view this period in years to come...

I was 8 years old. I missed most of The sixties except for my older brothers albums. :-)
