New York: Cowles, 1968. First Edition. Octavo. Blue cloth in original psychedelic pictorial dust jacket showing Avedon's famous posters. 213 pages. An uncommon volume. A bit of foxing to top edge otherwise a near fine copy in like dust jacket.

A series of essays written shortly after the release of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Magical Mystery Tour. Contributors include Timothy Leary (they are "Evolutionary agents sent by God, endowed with mysterious power to create a new human species"); pompous intellectual twit William F. Buckley Jr. ("The Beatles are not merely awful, I would consider it sacrilegious to say anything less than that they are godawful"); Larry Neal on why The Beatles don't sing for the black man; Peter Stafford on The Beatles and Psychedelia, The Indian Influence on The Beatles by Allen Keesee, and many others.
