The freewheeling '60s is hamstrung by the hangover of the '70s in this examination of Carter-era America. The album consists of man-on-the-street interviews mixed with a healthy dose of media skewering. The final cut is the first studio recording of Firesign's signature routine "Pass The Indian Please," - a staple of their past live performances.
