Arlo Guthrie Revisited

Cover of "Alice's Restaurant"Cover of Alice's Restaurant

Just finished listening to Arlo Guthrie's (Woody Guthrie's son) "Alice's Restaurant" and wow what a takeback the 60's, from a hodgepodge playist of favorties I've compiled.

It is a masterpiece protest song against the Viet Nam War, and popped up unexpectedly.

If you can, track it down and give it a listen and get ready to crack up at vintage sarcasm, satire and absurdity of an insane time period in America's history.

"You can get anything you want at Alices's restaurant."

Used to work with a guy, a musician, that claimed to have plaid base in Arlo's band...
