I recorded the Frog Fair, a live 3 day hippy music festival in 1998, with my newly purchased digital mixer and an Adat machine. ...I remember at the end of the festival, feeling I had attended a mini Woodstock... https://soundcloud.com/birdtribes/cumusk-at-frog-fair

Recently digitized, from a 40 year old cassette tape, my original song Ringolevio written in 1973 and featuring Phil Taylor, pre-Motorhead. He was the drummer for my band of the same name... This song was inspired by Emmet Grogans description of this New York street game in his book "Ringolevio" this book also covers the San fran Hippy scene and the diggers.
