Nineteen-Sixty-Seven is based on a story by H. Fox entitled “O-bay Scooplaws and the Summer of Love”, detailing the history of a group named O-bay Scooplaws, who Charles Bobuck had been involved with in 1969. One of the thousands of bands who moved to San Francisco in 1967 with hopes of making it big, O-bay Scooplaws failed despite a brief association with the members of Jefferson Airplane.
Bobuck said: "I bought a tape recorder and started learning how to use it by setting lyrics of some of my favorite songs of 1967 to new music. I saw it as a way of hearing these lyrics fresh again, of understanding deeper meanings in what was being said."
These recordings would supposedly make the basis of Nineteen-Sixty-Seven, released fifty years later as a celebration and tribute of the times.
