Awesome! Thanks for all your posts, I really enjoy them. This one takes me back....


This is interesting. The Jefferson Airplane released an album with the title "Bless its pointed little head". I wonder which came first, this ad or the album? My guess is that this ad is a play on the J.A's album title. If I'm wrong, it throws a whole new light on the JA's album.

Nick, thanks so much for the background story.

And, Pfunder, thank you for the kind words.


The JA album was released in February of 1969, if this ad is from an earlier date, then we know which came first.
