I loved that film!

Yes, "Today" is very evocative of the time. So is "Coming Back To Me," the next track. I think I may like that one even better. It reminds me of Pears Before Nation's One Nation Underground but is more musically satisfying.

There's a sound in a lot of the Summer of Love slow songs that derives not just from the flutes, but they way they are recorded, that I like to think of as "filmstrip" music. That is, they remind me of the inevitably distorted musical accompaniment to the spoken word instructional material put on a cassette for classroom use.

Yes, similarly evocative and definitely reminiscent of Pearls Before Swine. I think the use of "Today" in AWOTM concretized a certain association very powerfully for me and so it has a slight edge in my mind. This was definitely the "filmstrip" era for me. I only wish I had as keen a memory for such aesthetic details as you!
