Pure Food and Drug Act - "Eleanor Rigby"

Named after a 1906 consumer protection law that laid the foundation for cannabis prohibition, the Pure Food and Drug Act only played together for three years before disbanding. Though the life of the band was shorter than their haircuts (and super kickass beard/stache combos), the Pure Food and Drug Act hit the '70s running with this "Eleanor Rigby" cover, recorded live for its sole album Choice Cuts. The controversial law, signed on June 30, took effect on the first of the year 112 years ago today. This makes it the perfect time to revisit one of the grooviest Beatles covers ever pressed on wax.
