#1: March 1968: Psych-Out / The Mothers of Invention / Faces / James Brown

Bradley and Simon discuss four of the most interesting releases of March, 1968: the surprisingly dark hippie morality tale Psych-Out starring a baby-faced Jack Nicholson (5:27); We're Only In It For the Money, Frank Zappa's satirical jazz-rock skewering of the postwar political climate (24:53); the birth of American independent cinema courtesy of John Cassavetes' Faces (40:31); and the godfather of soul James Brown releases his first full funk album, I Can't Stand Myself (When You Touch Me) (58:54). We'll do everything we can to ensure you don't have a bad trip.
