    More Information:

    Arguably the most political figure associated with 1967's "Summer of Love," Country Joe McDonald led Country Joe and the Fish, a Psych/Folk Rock act that was an influential part of the late-1960s San Francisco music scene. Formed in 1965, Country Joe and the Fish began as a Folk duo heavily influenced by the work of Woody Guthrie. Soon, they were a full-fledged electric Rock act. McDonald used his music as a something of a political platform, protesting the establishment and the Vietnam War. In 1967, the band released their second studio album, I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-to-Die. The LP's title track is to- this-day considered the ultimate Vietnam War protest song, and was written by McDonald in twenty minutes for an anti-war theatrical play. Aside from being an instant classic of a protest song, coupled with "The 'Fish' Cheer," it is essentially Woodstock's defining moment. Country Joe's post-Fish career has been incredibly prolific, with nearly three-dozen albums released since 1969. Acerbic and original where many acts of the day were glorified pop groups, Country Joe McDonald is a countercultural icon. Heritage Auctions is proud to present a selection of memorabilia from his personal collection, never offered before at auction anywhere.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
