  1. I am a little behind on explosring the comments - but thanks for posting this. Ya know, from the look I NEVER would have thought 1950s....
  2. What a FANTASTIC poster.... well done.
  3. Thanks Jonnie. That is fascinating, and now it makes sense.
  4. FABULOUS MCM look to these - good score!
  5. Fascinating piece of history! Now is that barbed wire around the helmet? As non-collector but still a history buff, I do not recall seeing that before...
  6. OooOOOoooHHHhhh I LIKE!
  7. I bet you are right!
  8. I am not a radio collector but I would love to have that sitting on my desk. Nice one.
  9. Thanks for the chuckle Newfld! :-)
  10. Never knew Milli Vanilli were hippies! Ha ha.
  11. Thanks Newfld - isn't the biker great! And yes, the graphic style works really well.
  12. Jenni - your Dad was hip if he drove a VW Beetle... ha ha. UNLESS he had to drive it in the snow. I invented curse words pushing one up a hill outside of Keene NH in the snow.
  13. Ha ha - hope it went well buckethead! I am sure that mist have Psychedelicized the workplace.
  14. I have seen these before - they date from the hippie era 1960s-1970s. Do not recall a maker. I have also seen them using flour sacks and similar. Really cool pants.
  15. Thanks Ms.CrystalShip - it is the patched and embroidered jeans that can be tough condition wise - they wore them to death.
  16. THANK YOU BUCKETHEAD! That video was immediately put on my playlist, I have on it already their performance in LA during the 80s of this classic, but this video was made just days before the Ohio Conc...
  17. Hi Bill - always a consideration when buying these artifacts is when they were created especially when buying from a reseller. The smoke is embroidered with white thread. Kinda cool.
  18. Thanks Ms.CrystalShip for the information! What did you used it for?
  19. That is a wonderful historic moment. I was in High School while my brother was in college trying to shut down the university... they were worrisome times and when Kent State happened, I did not know w...
  20. Took me a month to reply Bill, but thanks. When you think of this as being created pre computer age, when one had to cut screens, and use acetate layers and stat machines... yes, it is an amazing bit ...
  21. Thanks! Always appreciate hearing it. Sometimes we collectors - as you know - can feel like we are on an island.
  22. Good eyes - I like that too.
  23. I would LOVE to hear those stories.... maybe worn to the coffee house to hear a young Dylan... who knows?
  24. Thank you joyfulthingsvintage! Ms.CrystalShip - sometimes the stories are sad like this one, but I am glad I could preserve that history with it. This piece meant a lot to that family and debated ...
  25. That is special, well done! Never heard the word segunda before...
  26. HA HA Bill - you are right. Maybe in my then hormone laced brain I saw them differently.
  27. Thanks! ...yeah but psychedelic bubbles...
  28. Love the comments... :-)
  29. Ooohhh the old buds for inspiration ha ha.
  30. Same style as these?
  31. Thanks SpiritBear. I knew this fell in the window that I look for, but glad to narrow it to early 70s.
  32. OH MY GOD! THAT IS FREAKIN' SPECTACULAR! As good as it gets, I am experiencing 60s envy.
  33. I agree with shareurpassion, I too laughed at blunderbuss2's comment... and yes, I too wish you still had the tag - that would be great. Such is life. And yes, i recall watching the Watts Riots on the...
  34. Lois kept great care of it all these years. She said it felt funny selling something she had for so long - 46 years is indeed a long time... for both of us.
  35. Yes - i wondered the same thing at first glance.
  36. MacdaddyRico - you are absolutely correct. I have in my collection enough Peter Max items, he did not do Yellow Submarine and he did not do 7-Up advertising but you will hear it repeatedly.
  37. You're one cool cat MacDaddyRico!
  38. Outstanding design. Would expect to see this in the Museum of Modern Art.
  39. I know Manikin - can you imagine trying to drive wearing these? YIKES!
  40. I refrained from commenting but personally I find it fascinating a pair of vintage bobbing heads can get a serious discussion on the geopolitical climate of fifty-odd years ago. Makes a collector's h...
  41. Ha ha - well I guess we've never been to a Thailand Air Force Base...
  42. You are doing well Bill - would take a 40 for me! Ha ha
  43. Thanks! I have "different" taste I guess... ha ha.
  44. PoliticalPinbacks - OH I LOVE that thought. Had not thought of that possible Berrigan connection... As Bill said - I will have to search photos etc to find perhaps them in the crowds. Thanks to both o...
  45. billretirecoll it is actual decoupage! Go figure - and then was coated with something to preserve their work.
  46. Thanks iggy - it wasn't done professionally enough, so i wondered. Appreciate you sharing your knowledge. And MacddyRico - yeah, there is a good chance of that ha ha.
  47. THANKS PoliticalPinbacks had no idea. Appreciate the heads up. - AND I now follow CW.
  48. Thanks Maniken! Always great to hear. :-)
  49. Thank you billretirecoll - I agree the history with it makes it more than just an artifact.
  50. Thanks alientrouble - if you ever want to write down your memories of the 72 hours at Woodstock, would love to have them.
