San Francisco: The Trystero Company, 1968. 16p., folded tabloid, illus., lightly tanned, tiny tears at some page corners due to web press, faint whiff of must, but overall very good.
The Express Times was S.F.'s main political underground paper. This is the issue immediately prior to the 1968 Chicago Democratic Convention with the prophetic headline: "If you're going to Chicago, be sure to wear some armor in your hair." Articles include Eldridge Cleaver choosing Jerry Rubin as his vice presidential candidate on the Peace & Freedom Party ticket,, report on Huey Newton's trial, an interview with Peter Townsend of the Who about their Tommy album, Rick Griffin drawing near plug for a Zap Comix exhibit. Back cover is a hand-drawn and lettered astrological analysis for the week of Aug. 21-27 entitled "the gigantic tent of Hermes Trismegistius" by the Berkeley Astrology Guild.
