Please Plant This Book


"Please Plant This Book" was first distributed on 20th March 1968, 1st day of Spring festival in Golden Gate Park.
6000 copies were made, funded (approx $500) by band Mad River out of their advance from Capitol Records. Richard Brautigan had collaborated with them on spoken word/music tracks, also had helped feed and support them when they first moved to San Francisco and were broke and struggling.
Happy Birthday Richard Brautigan. He took his own life after giving it to us in his words.
