This was also a time when young "hippies' making thier way back east from L.A. and San Francisco brought back copies of KRLA's "The Beat," a weekly Sound Survey that morphed into a mini-newspaper of sorts. That was where I saw an ad for "Four Days of Rain." I never heard the song until today.
"The Beat" is also where I saw for the very first time, a song on their music chart "Come Up The Years" by a group called Jefferson Airplane. It was never played on local radio... JA's debut album appeared one day in the bargain bin at a department store... naturally, I bought it, along with "Harumi" and a couple of other LPs inlcluding the Beau Brummels' TRIANGLE. I was the kid who always had the greatest music FIRST, months before anyone heard of The Who or Joni Mitchell or The Spencer Davis Group or Jimi Hendrix, they were "home" on my turntable!***
