Happy Hippie Radio, Pt. 6

This one took me by surprise; it seems we're out of time for our barefoot walk down the dirt road of hip radio at the end of the freak era in the San Francisco Bay Area (actually, I envision that road as existing somewhere in Marin, near the coast). Had to wrap things up in a hurry, leaving a few things behind. What do you say we do another, soon, eh? Meanwhile, look for the compiled Happy Hippie Radio, Volume 1 mix CD on this blog later this month. The other mixes continue...

PS: The version here of "Handbags and Gladrags" probably should have been Rod Stewart's, for the sake of accuracy, but I just couldn't face thinking about Rod every time I play this CD, so instead you have the original version.

"Hey, freak!"

Song list:

18. Steve Miller Band - Your Saving Grace
19. Mike d'Abo - Handbags and Gladrags
20. John Prine - Your Flag Decal Won't Get You Into Heaven Anymore
21. Youngbloods - Hippie From Olema
