Daydream Sunset and 1970s Radical Politics...

In some of the reviews of Daydream Sunset, there has been mention that I minimize some of the politics of the 1970s.

For those desiring a more complete understanding of the alternative perceptions and the people that held them in that period, let me recommend reading The Way the Wind Blew and/or Max Elbaum's Revolution in the Air and/or Aaron Leonard's Heavy Radicals.  I think the combination of these texts provide a fairly comprehensive look at the trends of the Sixties New Left and counterculture movements in the 1970s.

The Dead Show That Closes Out My Book

I went searching for a recording of the January 198o Kampuchean Refugees Benefit Show that I close out Daydream Sunset with.  While searching, I found this description of the show.  I have a few differences with the author, but it's a good read.  So is the rest of the site--Lost Live Dead....Check it out.

If you want to hear the Dead's portion of the show, here is a link to a fairly decent recording

Happy New Year!
