Traffic and the US Underground
Derek Boltwood, Record Mirror, 1 June 1968
THE "UNDERGROUND" in England is a collection of dark damp platforms and jostling crowds and miles and miles of tube trains weaving in and out of tunnels. The "underground" in America is a groovier thing, nothing to do with tube trains, more to do with beautiful people and beautiful sounds. A way of life that reached its peak with flower-power and weekend hippies but still survives in a more genuine form. Especially on the music scene.
