This book contains every essay Peter Stampfel (Holy Modal Rounders, The Fugs, Peter Stampfel + Jeffrey Lewis) wrote for the Boston Broadside. Peter's writing in Broadsides, describing what was going on in music from 1964 to 1967 is/was ahead of its time. His take on the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Jeff Beck, the Grateful Dead was way ahead of what music critics were saying at the time, and is as on target now as it was then. His recollections of Weber are slapstick funny and disastrously poignant.
