Murray Roman Said:

“Go ahead – you have my permission to dance, copulate and smoke!”

In fact it was Keith’s influence at Track Records in the late sixties that facilitated the release of You can’t beat people up… and Blind Man’s Movie.

Melanie Safka was backstage at the Isle of Wight Festival, August 1970:

‘Suddenly, the door burst open and in jumped Murray Roman and immediately they [Murray and Keith] went into an hilarious comedy routine… I can’t begin to tell you how much that cheered me up, and then they were gone.’

Was talking about Bill Hicks the other day and I recalled a great comedian of a similar ilk from the 60s called Murray Roman.

There were two albums of his that I used to listen to as a stoned 16 year old hippie acid head: Blind Man’s Movie and You can’t beat people up and have them say I love you.

He also did a lot of live gigs in the late 60s (think he supported the Doors once) backed by a fantastic soul band whose name unfortunately escapes me.

Anyway, a friend of mine was searching for some downloadable stuff of his (preferably free) so here it is:

YOU CAN’T BEAT PEOPLE UP AND HAVE THEM SAY I LOVE YOU

A BLIND MAN’S MOVIE

Enjoy!
