Journey To The Center Of The Mind
(Ted Nugent - Steve Farmer)

The Amboy Dukes' only hit single (#16, 1968). The eponymous LP has 30-odd
different smoking implements on the cover, and the entire second side (which
this both leads off and concludes) is a suite about finding The Meaning Of
Life through O.D.ing. Nonetheless, Ted Nugent swears to this day that he
didn't know it's about drugs... - AW
