PROGRAM NOTES:

Date this lecture was recorded: February 16, 1979.

Today’s podcast features the audio track from the well-known last gathering of several of the men whose work was done in the very early days of what today is becoming known as the Psychedelic Renaissance. These men, who included Myron Stolaroff, Sidney Cohen, Al Hubbard, Timothy Leary, Oscar Janiger, and Humphry Osmond came together on a February day in 1979 and talked about some of their research, and some of their adventures, during the early days in which widespread use of psychedelics, particularly LSD, came into play.

  1. Off topic, but on a recent podcast, Lorenzo talked about music. Specifically that he can rarely fit in the suggestions of Saloners (though he made an exception in that podcast).

    I urge readers to check out a band that has been around for a long time but I only learned about recently: The Chemistry Set. Really nice 60s-style rock and roll for those who like the style. And a definite psychedelic sensibility.

    Here’s a sample:
    Come Kiss Me, Vibrate and Smile
    “We took a taste of Owsley’s grace,
    the door shall open wide.
    We flew through space, our minds replaced
    Peace and Love abound”
    This vid includes footage from Merry Prankster times.

    [COMMENT by Lorenzo: I really enjoyed this video. As you said, there is some excellent video from the Further bus trip. Worth watching more than once IMO.]
