Labeled “The Most Dangerous Man in America” by Richard Nixon, TIMOTHY LEARY was one of the most intriguing and enigmatic figures to emerge from the ‘60s. One part psychologist, one part psychonaut, and one part huckster, Leary capitalized on media coverage to become the spokesperson of the counterculture’s experimentation with drugs and especially LSD. His 1967 Mercury album Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out—The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack was released under typically hazy circumstances, and was the soundtrack to a film nobody ever saw, and to this day remains subject to speculation. It appears that Leary, his partner ROSEMARY WOODRUFF LEAY and fellow psychedelic adventurer RALPH METZNER made a film chronicling a Metzner’s experience of an LSD trip. Leary Acts as guide and Rosemary Leary the Divine Presence as Metzner journeys through his Body, through his memory, and all the way back to his evolutionary cellular origins. Unlike the album by the same name Leary released a year earlier on the ESP-Disk label, Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out is no mere spoken-word record.  Leary’s rap Is accompanied by a mesmerizing East-West blend of guitar, tabla, and the rarely-eeard veena, an Indian instrument akin to a sitar or a sarod. Music, voice, and sound/studio effects combine tocCreate a musique-concrete effect. Pressed on red, blue & green “kaleidoscope” vinyl. Limited to 1,600 copies.
