The Gonzo Tapes: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. ThompsonDisc Two: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Gonzo tapes "This is... the way it should be.  You should never go anywhere without a giant white Cadillac convertible."

Listening to this disc while kneading bread was one of the oddest experiences I've had in quite some time.  Possibly because I was doing something so purely wholesome while listening to Thompson and Acosta wander around looking for the American Dream in what must have been a seriously drug-induced haze?  It's hard for me to wrap my mind around the fact that these tapes are the real deal -- maybe because the events and Thompson himself are so legendary that it's difficult to imagine all of this actually taking place for real? 

Anyway, I'm continuing to really enjoy them.
