During the "Summer of Love" in San Francisco in 1967, Brilliant gave daily lectures near the Haight St. entrance of Golden Gate Park. Brilliant released a live album recorded in Golden Gate Park in 1967 on a small Hollywood, CA record label, Dorash Enterprises (Dorash LP-1001). The album (Ashleigh Brilliant in the Haight-Ashbury) is quite rare today. The material uses familiar public domain songs and melodies and incorporates clever, poetic lyrics about marijuana, the Diggers, San Francisco neighborhoods, and his personal experiences, all the while displaying a banter which ebbs and flows with his audience, who respond warmly to the performance, and also participate in the songs. He states in the recording that he had been performing in this setting for approximately two hours each day the prior four weeks. He laughs throughout his performance, while the audience joins him in singing along and banging on percussive items. The album ends with a "Haight-Ashbury Farewell."
