Sometimes these head shops stores would be sold and the new owners would open up in the same locale, and really attempt to make a go of it again, for awhile, but usually they too realized that they were expected to comply with annoying laws that were starting to be strictly enforced, not to mention the harping of concerned citizens who were constantly in some state of uproar over what influence these head shops were having in their precious, innocent children’s lives.Some of the owners did pretty well with their stores, financially-speaking, and they began migrating into other areas (like selling concert tickets), which would then become their main source of income.I remember they had a turntable behind the counter at Swinger’s, and they usually played complete sides of albums, most of the time, and I’d often stay long enough to hear several albums worth of tunes before I rode my bike back home.

Michael Lang, a wannabe musician and one of the original promoters of the Woodstock festival, is a good example of one entrepreneur who branched out into other areas.
During the early sixties, he’d gone to college, briefly, a few times, including at least a semester or two at the University of Tampa, Florida, and it was during that time that the native New Yorker first visited a bohemian enclave of Miami, called Coconut Grove, that he got the idea to open up his own head shop.
I can definitely remember hearing Sabbath’s Side One album track, the one that kicks off with a tape loop of guitarist Tommy Iommi coughing while smoking a joint with bandmate Ozzy — and hearing it inside the store opened my eyes to vibrancy of early 70s stoner rock heaviosity, music that I soon realized I was actually missing out on because I was just a little kid back then and had mostly been listening to the local KEZY AM station on my tiny transistor radio, which I carried around with me everywhere.
