Donovan  Sunshine Superman The groups first collaboration was "Sunshine Superman". One of the first overtly psychedelic pop records, it was an innovative and eclectic blend of folk, rock, pop and jazz. The arrangement was augmented by prominent harpsichord and sitar, and set against a funky conga-driven backbeat. It also contained subtle but unmistakable references to LSD notably, the line, "I could've tripped out easy, but I've changed my ways". The US version of the Sunshine Superman LP is arguably the best, most consistent and most durable of Donovan's albums, and it remains one of the keynote records of the psychedelic era. 1966

Donovan  Mellow Yellow On 24 October 1966, Epic released the rollicking, brass-laden single "Mellow Yellow", arranged by John Paul Jones and purportedly featuring Paul McCartney on uncredited backing vocals. It was rumoured that the phrase "electrical banana" referred to smoking banana peels to get high. Look for the guy lighting up!

Bananadine Hoax 1967 Bananadine is a fictional psychoactive substance which is supposedly extracted from banana peels. A hoax recipe for its extraction from banana peels was originally published in the Berkeley Barb in March 1967. It became more widely known when William Powell, believing it to be true, reproduced the method in The Anarchist Cookbook in 1970. The original hoax was designed to raise questions about the ethics of making psychoactive drugs illegal and prosecuting those who took them: 'What if the common banana contained psychoactive properties, how would the government react?" One book of one-liner joke comics, published in 1971, contained a comic in which a teen is secretly handing bunches of bananas to a zoo gorilla at night, uttering the line, 'Just throw the skins back, man!' Researchers at New York University have found that banana peel contains no intoxicating chemicals, and that smoking it produces only a placebo effect. Over the years, there has been considerable speculation regarding the psychoactive properties of banana skins. Donovan's hit single Mellow Yellow was released a few months prior to the Berkeley Barb article, and in the popular culture of the era, the song was assumed to be about smoking banana peels. Shortly after the 'Berkeley Barb' and the song, bananadine was featured in the New York Times.

Benny Leonard - Sad Last Fight Throughout boxing history many great champions have either lingered too long or have made ill-advised comebacks only to suffer a bad defeat at the hands of a younger, fitter man. Benny Leonard, one of the greatest lightweights of all time, falls into this category. He reigned as world lightweight champion from 1917 to 1925 when he retired from the ring at age 28 at his mother's insistence. A master boxer, the hugely popular Leonard was almost unbeatable in his prime. Leonard lost all his savings when the stock market crashed in 1929 and was forced to make a comeback to earn a living. Starting in October 1931 Leonard won 19 fights and had one draw versus mostly substandard opposition. On October 7, 1932 he was paired against rising welterweight star Jimmy McLarnin--a terrific boxer-puncher who was 10 years younger than the 36-year-old Leonard. This condensed version of the fight at Madison Square Garden shows McLarnin administering a sound beating on the gallant old champ before referee Arthur Donovan wisely steps in to halt the contest in the sixth round. McLarnin would win the world welterweight title within a year. Leonard never fought again, but he stayed involved in boxing as a very capable referee. Leonard died of a heart attack while refereeing a bout in 1947. He was just 11 days past his 51st birthday.
