Winter of 1967. It’s snowing in NY, I’m a kid, in my bedroom on Long Island, plotting how to get down to St. Marks Place and the Fillmore. On WNEW, Scott Muni does an ad for Paul Sargent’s menswear, where, if I were older and actually had money, I could buy my first Nehru jacket. I’m sad because I don’t know how long it will be until I can get to the Village. Then this song comes on, and I know I will arrive soon. Because there’s no opportunity necessary, and no experience needed…
