    This was supposed to be released on the Beatles Zapple label as Zapple 3 a few were printed until a certain Allen Klein pulled the plug under orders from an alarmed John Lennon. (However a few were printed and packed before Harvest did the honours ,depends on your humour angle I suppose), but it works even when you try the trout or a mine disaster . Richard was a natural stand up comedian who revelled in the explosive 60’s flower or pretentious style of humour. It is still very funny.

      ...digging RB is a high flying buzz, chillin and grooving with cool abandon,a total trip...richard was a left field beatnik caught up in the hippy scene when he came to prominence in the late 60's world-wide underground market place when publishing houses were trying to GET HIP with the youth that was sprouting literary pretensions...even the FAB4 knew richard was a cool daddio and tried to get him out to the public via their zapple imprint for spoken word, there was going be some kind of series of beat visionaries all reading their work and skitting, but as with other HOTcha ideas emanating from FAB HQ it came to nought in the 'real world'...brautigan had been writing his grooved out stories of weirdsville for many moons, the bubbly reclining stance of his writing takes a cat to an arcane/unseen world vista, there's an olde rustic charm mixing with a commune hippy scene, nothing defined, just an imagining, a calm encroachment into a hearsay world, all that is known is transmitted via gentle rhythm, moving along with sweet eloquence, a fluidity in the mythical stream that once was held in the eye of the denizens of camelot...listening to richard is slipping through the keyhole of the ancient gates of the sacred city of righteous any cat who leaves his telephone number on the front cover has to be some kind of honest head who has belief in humanity...
