Dr. Timothy Leary, Ph.D. - Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out [1967]

Here's some trippy shit.

Dr. Timothy Leary and co. narrate a sort of acid meditation ("Galactic time has labored to produce this moment. Exquisite. All things, all images, move slowly within shimmering nets", etc. etc. etc.). Backing this is a melange of '60s hippy culture--sitars, folky guitars, odd sound effects, bird songs...the whole album would come of as incredibly goofy if it wasn't so goddamn sincere. The record as a whole is a fascinating artifact from a time when psychedelic exploration still had cultural validity.

  1. This is actually a surprisingly enjoyable listen. I think I will "Turn On" to this at some point.
