LEARY, TIM / METZNER, RALPH / ALPERT, RICHARD: The Psychedelic Experience
* In 1966 the great maverick label Folkways released this as an LP - two readings from the book The Psychedelic Experience, based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and written as a guide to LSD users - a going in section, to be played at the start of the trip and a coming back section to be played 2/3 the way into the trip (if you're still keeping track of the time). Like a manual on how to fly a broomstick or organise servants in a great house, this is a document of a lost world, once inhabited by people who believed and took it deadly seriously, and is now only for those who study or are interested in such things - unless you are taking the drug, when I guess this would be an optional and possibly useful guide. How quickly things that seem deep become the stuff of ridicule. One of the sources of 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. O tempora, o morˇs - or not.L
