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…

VOTE HERE:  http://www.lafpmusic.com/whos-next-you-tell-us-vote-now-thru-midnight-sunday

And you can SEE Videos, READ Bios, PLAY songs, FIND Official Artist Websites & more for the 1960s Musicians already featured… just goto:  http://www.lafpmusic.com/who-s-here

Country Joe and The Fish

Tag: C / Country Joe and The Fish / Country Joe and The Fish
Country Joe & The Fish Inspired by an anarchic Fugs show in Berkeley, Country Joe (as Stalin was ‘popularly’ known) McDonald & the Fish (Barry Melton… for this one you’re gonna have to check out Mao Zedong’s definition of a true revolutionary) became a rock band.  They had been many things prior to becoming that band,  a protest song writer's work shop, a magazine, a folk act with washtub bass among other things.  I like any band that can say they half expected to be arrested for singing their songs.   Read More

Dan Hicks and His Hot Licks was formed in '68, and mostly played second fiddle - as you can see from the advert on our pages from back then. But they were good. And by the time their 3rd and last album came out (1973's Last Train to Hicksville, Hicks made the cover of Rolling Stone! Read More

Donovan

Tag: D / Donovan
The Los Angeles Free Press would like to congratulate Donovan on his induction to the Rock Hall of Fame! Detractors in the early days of his career claimed he was a Dylan clone but I think that is way off the mark. They were both just minin g the same Woody Guthrie folk protest territory. Dylan went commercial. Donovan Read More
