We’re straightening up the story line during a ten year piece of history (1963-1973) in a documentary film that is being told straight out of the mouths and hearts of The True Believers of The Psychedelic Era. We need one or two financial backers who will support our film so that the real story, the true story, the authentic story, the official story, will be told right once and for all. Our mission per Chet Helms is to “Set the record straight.” In other words … not to fatten up history with myths but to ‘truthen’ up history with facts so that our time — the time of all times — will not be twisted, misrepresented or distorted. Honest history isn’t secondhand information. Real history is experience-based, empirical evidence and we have it interviews never heard before, and film footage and photos never seen before. If you believe 1963-1973 is a crucial piece of World History, please tell us why and how you would go about generating the funds to make it happen.
Chet’s favorite song of this period ; ” Get Together ” :
Dino Valenti ( songwriter of Get together), sings the Theme Song of the 60’s — in the back yard in 1990 :
Above is Dino in 1990, below is :
Dino back in the Summer of Love :
The Theme of the Scene was ” Let’s Get Together “
…… and years later Dino’s son Joli Valenti sings the song at the Artista Gathering :
