WHERE TO SCORE
Taken from the classified section of the infamous Haight Ashbury counterculture newspaper the San Francisco Oracle, Where to Score presents not the candy-colored prophecies of various gurus, but a quieter, more revealing corner of the paper. There, surrounded by advertisements for drummers, carpenters and head shops, are the desperate pleas of parents seeking wayward children. “Will you trust me enough to call collect and let me know you’re alright?” Elsewhere, beat poet Michael McClure needs a harp and the Sexual Freedom League is hungry for recruits. The diminutive entries speak volumes to the times, showcasing an honest, immediate and lesser-known chapter in the era’s history.
