Originally issued by Capitol Records in July 1966 and subtitled a documentary report on the current psychedelic drug controversy!, this notorious album offers both a background report into the new phenomenon of lysergic acid diethylamide and a recording of an actual trip. Fuelling anti-psychedelic prejudice beneath a veneer of objectivity, it stands as an important early artifact in the history of the psychedelic movement, and features contributions from Timothy Leary, Allan Ginsberg, Aldous Huxley's widow Laura, early acid rockers Fire and Ice, Ltd., and Neal Cassady and a pre-Grateful Dead group called the Warlocks. Interviews and recording by Lawrence Schiller. Medical consulting by Sidney Cohen, M.D. This is the first CD reissue of this artifact. Includes detailed liner notes and images.
