The Other Side: Richard Manuel
Peter Stone Brown, The Welcomat, 12 March 1986
IT WAS MANY YEARS ago, July. Psychedelic music was still happening. After Bathing at Baxter's. The Doors were huge. Hendrix alive. I brought home the strangest-looking record on Capitol with what appeared to be a young child's painting on the cover. The back had a color shot of a stupid-looking pink house and in huge, ugly black letters read, Music from Big Pink.
