An early issue of the Bay Area folk magazine Rag Baby, which published sheet music, reviews, lyrics, and poetry. This issue is particularly notable for containing the lyrics "Talkin’ LSD," a song by Peter Krug describing an acid trip. Predating Ken Kesey’s first acid test by a month and The 13th Floor Elevators first singles by several more, the song and its inclusion in Rag Baby evidence the very early circulation of LSD in the Bay Area counterculture scene.
