Harry (or Henry) Anderson critiques the musical HAIR, which he feels is overwhelmingly reductive of the hippie communities. He details the variety of ways in which actual hippies live; from drug use to religion to politics, and so on. He says the the rejection of materialistic is the only common thread throughout the many hippie subcultures. Steve Murdoch reports from Wyoming. His commentary covers the difference between Wyoming and California, including the problems created by the U.S. government for the large Indigenous population in Wyoming, the state’s high rates of vehicular accidents, the air quality, and more. Digitization made possible through a Recordings at Risk grant from the Council of Libraries and Information Resources.
