Nothing takes me back to the Fall of 1963 like this album. I was 13 at the time. Most of my friends thought this record was cool. At the very least it was a cultural artifact that you had to deal with in some way, if only to reject it as too weird. It was certainly weird, whatever else you might have thought about it.
Is there anything in our popular culture now that’s capable of challenging 13 year-olds in the same way?
