Satu hal yang menarik dari vinyl ini ada semangat perubahan di era yang memang menyerukan banyak pergerakan dari para musisi.

The prelude to the Summer of Love was the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park on January 14, 1967, which was produced and organized by artistMichael Bowen as a “gathering of tribes”.

James Rado and Gerome Ragni were in attendance and absorbed the whole experience; this became the basis for the musical Hair. Rado recalled, “There was so much excitement in the streets and the parks and the hippie areas, and we thought `If we could transmit this excitement to the stage it would be wonderful….’ We hung out with them and went to their Be-Ins [and] let our hair grow. It was very important historically, and if we hadn’t written it, there’d not be any examples. You could read about it and see film clips, but you’d never experience it. We thought, ‘This is happening in the streets,’ and we wanted to bring it to the stage.'”

Also at this event, Timothy Leary voiced his phrase, “turn on, tune in, drop out“, that persisted throughout the Summer of Love.







Enjoy the groove..
