GOOSE LAKE FESTIVAL
Detroit's version of Woodstock by Bob Gersztyn
"This August 7 – 9, 2021 it will be the 51 year anniversary of the Goose Lake International Music Festival held in Jackson, Michigan. It is the biggest concert event to take place in Michigan to date. It was the peak of the hippie era and the festival was a celebration of the youth during the middle of the war in Vietnam with the draft and chaotic civil unrest."
Sweet folk nostalgia via the Fabs by Kurt Wildermuth
"Hopkin is revered, but she doesn't have a cult. Partly that's because in those years she didn't write her own songs. And partly it's because some of her material--or rather material apparently foisted on her by Svengali producers--was on the sugary or sentimental side. She is best remembered for her hit version of Boris Fomin and Gene Raskin's celebration of nostalgia, 'Those Were the Days.'"
LES RALLIZES DENUDES
Psychedelic musical terrorism by Daniel Hess
"As one might expect from reading over the tumultuous existence of Les Rallizes Denudes, the music they produced has a style all its own. One that, upon first listen, may seem hard to penetrate, but opens up and is truly rewarding on repeated listens. It can best be described as having a hard shell to crack, but once you break through, you’ll discover music that comes from a darkly sweet plane of existence, that is utterly genuine in its uncompromising vision. Les Rallizes Dénudés never produced a proper studio album."
