  5. Best Stravinsky ever.
  6. The bus broke down halfway up the road to Pikes Peak. Lucky it was behind us and held off any further traffic for over an hour. We pulled over and climbed on the rocks. There was the sound o...
  7. "Stereo-Monophonic?"
  8. They hired a marksman with a rifle to shoot down Algie, the inflatable pig, in case it got loose in the wind. They didn't get the picture they wanted that day, so they set up the next day and ...

  10. That's gotta be the longest matchbook I've ever seen (in photo #4).
  11. STRA WBER RYFI ELDS (Illusions of My Childhood-Parts One, Two and Three). Clever little tribute in the song titles for an album that begins and ends with BEATLES songs.

  14. "Symphonic Styling"?
  15. Yes albums with the Roger Dean artwork were something we all would look forward to seeing at Wherehouse Records on Veterans Highway. Each successive album's artwork and design was a continuation o...

  20. I saw the album cover when she first bought it in 1968 and would look at it every Sunday when we visited.
  21. My Aunt Mary gave me this album from her collection over 40 years ago. It was the first I ever saw of Crumb's work - long before I saw his underground comix and I loved it! - And I can't be...
  22. I'm a big fan of that little fan below the Confederate card that's the size of a bottlecap. Always good to see the fun stuff from your journeys.
  23. He wore a blue t-shirt that read "ERIC BURDEN? F*CK ME, I THOUGHT HE WAS DEAD!"
  24. He played Tipitina's in New Orleans in 1986 and was great, but did the whole show and two encores WITHOUT doing "House of The Rising Sun". How could he play a New Orleans gig without doing that ...
  25. If a picture paints a thousand words, then why didn't they use that cool bread-shaped logo on the album cover?
  26. Pins and needles, needles and pins. A happy man is a man who grins.
  27. Why you gotta worry about da temperature? Just sit back and relax with a frosty cold RC, see?
  28. What? No blood?
  29. The cover of Portrait is a blast from the past. My Mom bought that album for us when we were kids. I was 11. They had recently guest-starred on an episode of "It Takes A Thief" with Robert Wagne...
