5. whoa that's some music

Peter Tosh is legend.
Yet I had never heard or seen that cut before, tho' I was weaned on Reggae, if only after I'd passed the age of 30. But those are good years, very good years.

6. Back in the day we'd get whacked out and partying

and we could totally enjoy this:
Merle Haggard -- Okie From Muskogee


For a laugh, a moment.

It was great music and we got off on how out of touch and ridiculous it was.
It was great music and Merle Haggard had a gift.

But the song itself was totally incongruent with the reality I lived in, as a Canadian/American in the 60's. The lyrics put a bag of "grass" up against "the flag" and "patriotism" - and not even the fucking straights in the area I lived could understand that. So the lyrics of the song were pretty much universally subject of a great laugh. As a Canadian magistrate said it in court, back in the day and after I pleaded no contest guilty to carrying a lid: "you are free to go after an absolute discharge".

OK I was lucky but even that far back in the day, common sense existed.
