Where to Score By Jason Fulford & Jordan Stein (J&L Books / KADIST) $6.99 – San Francisco Oracle was a countercultural newspaper published in the city’s bustling Haight Ashbury neighborhood from September 1966 to February 1968. In 12 issues combining poetry, spirituality and speculation with revolutionary rainbow inking effects, the Oracle reached well beyond the Bay Area and spoke to a radical new American ethos. The classified section featured ads for drummers, carpenters, head shops and more. Elsewhere, beat poet Michael McClure needs a harp and the Sexual Freedom League is hungry for recruits. An honest, immediate and lesser-known chapter bookending the “Summer of Love.”
