Ridin’ that train (Festival Express) 1970

In 1970 The Greatful Dead and fourteen other acts got on a private train going West and began partying nonstop, occasionally stopping to do concerts. Once, when they ran out of booze, they stopped the train at the nearest liquor store. With $800 from a hat passed around they resupplied including a huge display bottle of Canadian Club. That big bottle soon was fortified with LSD and the result can be seen in the video below. I hope these videos don’t get pulled off You Tube. Just in case I would watch ’em while you got ’em.

07/07/07 Summer of Love (1967) was 40 years ago.

summer of Love I will be going to my 40 year high school reunion next month. The summer of 1967 is featured in the current issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Their list of the top 40 albums from 1967 illustrates the significance of that year. I did not catch up with that scene until ten years later.
