PS This week 50 years ago was the Monterey Pop Festival, Monterey, California that started out the Summer of Love 1967 in San Francisco.


This is the first song featured in the series ‘Sounds From the Sixties Summer of Love 1967’ stay tuned. This was the summer that many people from all over the US and the world came to San Francisco, California to check out the new way of talking, the new of walking and maybe meet a new kind of mind there. I was living close to the Golden Gate Park where all the free-spirits gathered to be in nature in 1967, listen to music and smoke weed. It was a magical time with few restrictions and the feeling that at any moment far out great things would and did happen. Across the street from the park is the Haight-Ashbury district which became the mecca for the free spirits. I will never forget that summer checking out the shops in the Haight and seeing this long-haired dude with patched bell bottom jeans under the street signs ‘Haight’ and ‘Ashbury’, spreading his arms, looking at the sky and saying ‘I am here’ with a look of pure bliss on his face. We all had arrived in the world of free spirits, a new kind of mind, peace, love and music ruled in San Francisco, California in 1967. We wanted to change the world and we did and we can do it, again–keep the faith!
