Post, who will turn 70 in 2009, has been performing in
front of audiences for 62 years, and musically, he’s run
the gamut, from gospel and bluegrass to rock, before
finally settling into his folk music roots.
In August of 2007, Jim Post performed in a concert in
San Francisco, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the
original Summer of Love, along with Country Joe
McDonald, Canned Heat, members of the Doors and
other sixties-era stars. It was there, in Golden Gate
Park, that Post’s song, “Reach Out of the Darkness,”
now included in the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame,
became an anthem of the peace movement.
