Notes

Sent out to radio stations in 1970. Came with an information sheet. Both sides have the same label.

It features various famous musicians of the time trying to discourage youngsters from taking speed (and in some instances also indirectly promoting marijuana). Many of these sound rather uninspired, but the 6 spots by Frank Zappa are extremely hilarious. ("Hi, wanna die? Start today, use a little speed!", "This drug will make you just like your mother and father!" etc.) The last one has an excerpt from "We're Only In It For The Money" playing in the background.

Featured are members of (in order of appearance):

The Lovin' Spoonful
Canned Heat
The Byrds
The Monkees
The Mothers Of Invention
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
The Bluesbreakers
Chad & Jeremy
The Animals
Eric Burdon & War
Jefferson Airplane
