Hi King. I suggest you read "It Came From Inner Space" in "Storming Heaven" by Jay Stevens. My understanding is it started to go arse-up in San Francisco in mid-1967, and there's a slight delay before this is reflected in the music that was released by the Bay Area groups. By 1968, you begin to hear back-to-the-land themes in songs. I think JA's turning point was Crown Of Creation, which has a nice balance of positive and negative in it. It doesn't completely abandon peace and love, but Volunteers is "us-versus-them" Nixon era stuff.
