The Amboy Dukes' only hit single (#16, 1968).  The eponymous LP has 30-odd
different smoking implements on the cover, and the entire second side (which
this both leads off and concludes) is a suite about finding The Meaning Of
Life through O.D.ing.  Nonetheless, Ted Nugent swears to this day that he
didn't know it's about drugs...  -- AWR

So what you are saying is that people took drugs during the Psychedelic era? I am absolutely shocked and disgusted! And full of it;) Good tab
