And in the vernacular

Download: KIM FOWLEY "Canyon People (interview)"

The Fowley curio is from Highs In The Mid-Sixties Volume 3. It finds Fowley explaining to CBS News in the summer of ‘67 how 'the canyon people' had by then usurped the 'flower children' as America's hope for the future. He was totally right, you know, and it’s about time we take to the canyons, groove on each other, and build Buckydomes and live in peace forever – who’s with me?!!! (Note that on the runout groove to Fowley’s ’67 Reprise single “Don't Be Cruel” /”Strangers from the Sky” it says "Rodney Underground DS Canyon Put On.")
