When Was The Last Time You Played This Album?

Arlo Guthrie “Alice’s Restaurant”

Today’s Cool Album of The Day is Arlo Guthrie, “Alice’s Restaurant.’

An American Classic, simply put.

“Alice’s Restaurant” was recorded and released in 1967. It was Woodie Guthrie’s son, Arlo’s, debut album.

The story of ‘Alice’s Restaurant’ was the full Side A.

I’m not going to completely explain Arlo’s narrative here. It would take WAY to long and I’d probably screw it all up anyway.

But I will end with an interesting note. Richard Nixon was said to have this album.
‘The Song’ is 18:34 seconds, almost the exact same length as the Watergate tape gap.

Give this one a listen.
