    Does anybody remember a group from the early seventies called Boones Farm? I remember back in about 85 I gave all my 8track stuff away, and kept one 8track because (I loved it) and I heard there was only 1 or 2 hundred 8tracks made. I am in the midst of trying to find an 8track player and get this converted.

    Nothing on Itunes. Never was on Limewire. Only one song off the album on youtube. When I get it converted youtube will have the rest.

    Not really, but I remember (not so fondly) Boones Farm Apple Wine and Strawberry Hill back in the '70s.

    The wine probably prevented me from remembering the band. Sounds like a copyright issue though!

    A Boones Farm story -- I was about 20 or so. My parents go away on vacation and I invite some friends to come party at my house. One day I go to work and come home to find my friends partying in my backyard. My parents house has a jacuzzi, but the heater for it is broken. What did my friends do? They bought an inflatable swimming pool, disconnected the hot water hose from the washing machine, and filled the pool. Makepoopie jacuzzi, brought to you curtousy of Boones Farm and hormones.

    I remember the cheap hippie wines under the Boone's Farm label back then, and I'll leave it at that.;) As for a band being inspired to use the same name back then, I don't have any memory of them. I listened to a lot bands and albums during my youth, but Boone's Farm apparently slipped under my radar.

    The name of this thread, makes My head and stomach hurt. I have not so fond memories of My encounters with the likes of "strawberry hill". My sister found it necessary to remind Me of one of these particular episodes over the holidays. I recall it invloved Me throwing up into My really cool "StarWars" hat.

    Man, I miss that Hat....

    An after work Christmas party back in the 70's featured Strawberry Hill fortified with Everclear. The next morning when I could finally drag myself out of bed, I went out to my van and found bumper high scrapes and dents down both sides from one end to the other. Apparently I had some difficulty navigating through a parking lot somewhere. I have no memory of it.

    I am NOT proud of it. I did some remarkably stupid moronic crap when I was young and consider myself very lucky to have survived that period of my life.

    If I hit your car that night I apologize profusely.
