In September 1967 when I visited Haight-Ashbury (for one day) you couldn't have put many flowers in my hair; I had a very short brush cut or what my barber called a US Army burr cut. When I returned to Winnipeg after a trip through Big Sur, LA and Las Vegas, I subscribed to the San Francisco Oracle and the LA Free Press and may still have a few copies stacked away somewhere.

I bought the Feep all the time for Harlan Ellison's TV reviews. All my copies were burned in a fire more than 20 years ago.

Sorry to read the bad news, however distant...wonder what the FREEP back issues go for. I assume you've picked up the TEATs and HE'S WATCHING over the years.

Bill Crider said...

Yes, I've picked those up. I lost about 12 years of Rolling Stone in that fire, too.
