Answer:  FOURFRONT

(FAB-ulous stinky pun!  It was fifty years ago last year.  Sgt. Pepper taught the folks to cheer.  Ah, yes.  I remember my grandparents telling me about the Beatles.  They were British, right?  LOL!  I actually remember . . . buying records!  And, record machines/phonographs/hi-fis/stereos!  Good times.  Simpler times, in many ways.

Hey!  We have a surprisingly new clue word today, in “knock”.  Our good buddy, ralis95, will have to add this to his world famous clue word database.  I’m surprised Mr. Hoyt hasn’t used it before.  The jumble for it wasn’t tough, but of course it was new too.  As was “fbetuf”.  Both “smurt” and “giroin” have been used before, and oddly enough, it took me a few looks to see “origin”.  The answer letter layout was well encrypted.  The answer did not jump off the page for me.

Great cartoon!  Wax Trax Records!  LOL!  I liked the guy’s Beatles’ haircut!  The album covers, showing the four heads, was a nicely subtle clue.  This Jumble might have thrown a few of you, for a bit.  But, it’s got a good beat, and you can dance to it!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  It’s the last day of Black History month, and I’ve hardly seen any mention of it!  What’s up with that?!!!  #FebruarySoWhite!  I apologize for not featuring it here on this blog.     YUR
