Alice’s Restaurant-Arlo Guthrie

I found this album in a little book store called Desire Books & Records in Manly in Sydney, Australia. It’s from 1967 ( It has special meaning to me because my 2nd grade teacher, Miss Messina at Parkside Elementrary in North Babylon, New York, played it for us in class. I remember thinking how cool it was that a grown up was taking the time to explain each song and how important this album was to her and many others. That memory has stayed with me for over 40 years. As soon as I spotted it in the rack at Desire Books, I grabbed it. I probably only paid $5.00 for it. I think I found it around 2018. God love Miss Messina! 😉
