  • "Pizza & Anarchism", from the Seattle Sun, July 27, 1977

    "Morningtown: Morningtown pizza, a counter-culture pizza joint that was located for many years in the U District, between Roosevelt and 12th, just north of the University Bridge."

    ---A Seattle Lexicon

    "In the folk tradition, Carter & I had not played for years, but we dug out the guitars & set up the mics & tried to remember how to play stuff we had made up about 10 years before. Isn't that a cool sounding compressor on the Mosrite? It was home-made by Ed Streeter (on a totally funky hand etched circuit board that looks like it was layed out using electrical tape & an exacto knife). He gave it to me in the parking lot in front of Morningtown Pizza in about 1969. I've still got it, buried under a pile of other stuff on my electronics bench.

    All bound for Morningtown many miles away

    2. Driver at the engine, fireman rings the bell
    Sandman swings the lantern to say that all is well

    3. Maybe it is raining, where our train will ride
    All the little trav'lers are warm and snug inside

    4. Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day
    Somewhere there is Morningtown, many miles away
    All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.
