Your Friday Moment of Words Fail Me: Special Tales of Beatnik Glory Edition

From Swedish television, in 1968, please behold in breathless wonder The Fugs and a live version of their poignant torch song "I Couldn't Get High."

Truly, there were giants in the earth in those days. I should add that the clip is worth viewing for the brief solo segment with my long time hero Ed Sanders alone.

Have a great weekend, everybody!!!

Who are the guys in the band here? Around this time Chuck Larkey was playing with them, wasn't he? The same Chuck Larkey who later ended up married to Carole King?

That's a darned good tune, and the interviews are great. Thanks!
