Personal Quote:

[on the music of the late 1960s] My favorite LP of that era, really, was and remains Country Joe's [Country Joe and the Fish] "Electric Music For The Mind And Body", and I couldn't understand why it wasn't in the charts, 'cos everybody I knew had a copy of it. But, of course, it was actually that everybody who had a copy of it was somebody that I knew. See more »
