An eclectic scrapbook capturing the atmosphere and aesthetics of the post-hippie era in Southern California. Album belonging to a female student of California State University Northridge. One gets a sense of her priorities by going down the index list: Eleanor "My Best Buddy, Pal, and Partner"; Iota Chi (her sorority); Dope (a collage featuring pressed pot leaf and rolling papers); and Partying (scenes straight out of Linklater's DAZED AND CONFUSED complete with feathered hair, bongs and Led Zeppelin posters.) A spread of concert tickets show a taste for acts like The Who, The Rolling Stones, Eagles, Rod Stewart, Jethro Tull, and Neil Young. Pressed flowers and original artwork throughout round out the flowerchild aesthetics. This highly personal album has chill vibes, man.
