No words can describe this song, from 1970, about wanting to get back to one’s roots in San Bernardino (although the song is spelled San Bernadino). In addition, there are some very hip looking cats in the audience of this performance. The band is from Yorkshire England. This is at least an 8.5-9 on the oddness meter, if not more.
This song was written only a few years after Hunter S. Thompson chronicoled The Hells Angels and other biker gangs of San Berdo. Ontario was a farm, tract development was almost a decade away in Rialto, and Rancho Cucamonga was still in the minds of radio listeners as being a Mel Blanc/Jack Benny Joke. There was no 909 areacode, and people still traveled on Route 66.
