Our Front Cover portrays how well our 4th Birthday Party went… with 25,000+ folks it was quite a bash 🙂 And the police being exceptionally cool was not the only surprise – unannounced, the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA… eventually known simply as Chicago) showed up for their 1st-ever gig!
As to the revolutionary news in this Issue (and our headline here)…
With this California Supreme Court decision, the LA Police Department could no restrict its city’s theaters’ choices of content. The following film review by Gene Youngblood provides proof of the benefit of the ruling.
(In that some readers might not know why Gene’s opinion is to be valued: From his start with us in 1967 he became – and is – an internationally-respected theorist of media and politics, and a scholar in the history and theory of alternative cinemas, he is a pioneer in the Media Democracy Movement. His best-known book, Expanded Cinema, was the first to consider video as an art form and has been credited with legitimatizing the fields of computer art and media arts.)
Just a reminder – – as always, you can find ‘this week’s’ adverts for some of the most remarkable music artists of the 60’s over on our FB Music Page.
