For the opening of an exhibition at UCLA of sculptor Harold Paris' work, Kurt organized the appearance of five musical groups, including Frank Zappa and a re-constituted Canned Heat. Canned Heat had attracted Kurt's attention at a concert, and not long there after he drafted this article in 1967 about the group and its blues music. A white group playing black blues, and playing it very well, was not the only story; "It ain't all good. There are, in fact, some tragic drawbacks to the fading of American Black culture--whether it is the result of being sold-out, flooded out and appropriated, or merely loved to death," Kurt penned. It's unclear if this article was ever published; the LA Free Press often printed articles by von Meier, but no record of its publication appears in Kurt's archives.
