Hello world!

We’ve been making some (beautiful) noise over at our Facebook Page – http://www.facebook.com/LAFPmusic- and thought that it’s about time that we add to that with a presence here.

One advantage here being, of course, that posts and comments don’t ‘roll down’ as they do on fb – you can always find what we’ve (and our Friends *** INCLUDING YOU) have had to say about the events and Artists that we discussed, and the old Music Posters (circa 1960s) that we’ve displayed.  Each of those discussion have been (or soon will be) ‘archived’ here on this 1960s LAFP Old Music Posters Project website, for your easy reference and a real trip back to the best past ever.

More than that, we’re taking the time on this site to expand on all the material that we transfer from our Facebook Page… adding even more interesting tidbits and additional LA Free Press Archive Items!  And whether you commented there or not… you’ve the chance to add to the discussion here!  Hope to see you soon…. will, we’re sure, add to the fun of it all icon smile Hello world!

Please don’t forget… here, like there, you are always welcome to request that we hunt down LA Free Press pieces from long ago – mentions of Artists and events that you may have an interest in – or even remember! – from long ago (our hey day being 1964 thru 1971).

EACH day, in fact, you can VOTE FOR 1960s ARTISTS that you would like to see featured…

The Mamas & Papas After the break-up of the legendary Mugwumps and the Journeymen, John Philips and Denny Doherty formed a new group called the Magic Cyrkle which included John's wife, Michelle.  Cass was the last member brought into the group although John didn't really want her in the group as he thought they could never be successful with someone of her size in the group.   Read More

I want to take your mind out for a test drive here.....we know Led Zep ripped off so many artists to make their "original" songs. Little Roger et al. released this little chestnut, a 45, and were sued by Page & Plant! The single was withd rawn. I bought one in 1978 for 38 frog skins and have no clue what they go for now.

Moby Grape What do you get if you add rock, country, blues, folk and psychedelic music to the ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory through bad luck, bad judgment and even worse behavior? You get the 60s San Francisco band, Moby Grape. For the band that should have had it all they walked away with a Buddhist brag,' I worked hard all my life and have nothing to show for it.'
