I would like some help. I lack a religion or even a spiritual practice, so I turn to music, most often Krishna Das. I don't have the slightest clue what he's singing about --- the Hindu names of God, mostly --- but I take comfort in the comfort he's found in his guru, Neem Karoli Baba.

"How good it is when brothers and sisters dwell together in harmony." That was the huge banner hanging on the back wall of the church. Picture it: friendly people eager for a group experience of divine love. I wasn't feeling it.

There was no Krishna Das in 1968. There was only my contemporary, an equally miserable rock-and-roll kid named Jeffrey Kagel. Luckily, Kagel met Ram Das, just back from his first trip to India.

As a showman, Peter Wolf is right up there with Mick Jagger and James Brown. He doesn't put out a batch of unrelated songs, he makes what used to be called "albums," and they take you on a carefully sequenced adventure.
