Oh. My. God.

You know, I'd always hoped I hallucinated this, but apparently not.

From 1987, it's....well, you'll see.



"Hey man, Is that Freedom Rock?"

"Yeah, man."

"Well, turn it up, man!"

Seriously -- YouTube really is the Library at Alexandria.

Cheech & Chong -- The Lean Years.



God help me, it didn't look like a bad collection of tunes....

Hell, my hallucinations used to be way better than that!

I'm not sure how a lot of these count for "Freedom Rock," but this is great -- and the album does sound pretty good...

For years after this ran, me and some friends of mine would do that opening exchange at the drop of a hat.

The actor with most of the lines is really good. I love how he shakes his head when talking. Really, some good acting, and most of the songs are great.

I am with the plumber, give me the vinyl!

Although, I was listening to and comparing some Beatles that I have ripped onto the computer with my eldest daughter. We were amazed that we have three different mixes of some of the songs off Magical Mystery Tour. There are the originals, these weird ones from Germany, and new ones from the 1 compilation.

I gotta get the mono too!

I own one of these CDs and it's pretty damned good! The bass line in "Reach Out in the Darkness" is surprisingly funky...too bad most of the song is drivel...they should have just kept the bass riff going and dispensed with the platitudes...

I've always thought it would be fun to assemble a bunch of hack musicians into a group called The Original Artists. Have them bash out a bunch of covers and sell them as performed by .....
Probably end up in jail but it would be amusing.
