Album review - Timothy Leary "LSD"
    #1340801 - 02/27/03 02:44 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Today I will review Timothy Leary?s "LSD" album from 1966. Many thanks go out to Sterile, who was kind enough to mail me my copy. This review is dedicated to him.

This cd is all spoken word. Unlike the other two Leary cd?s I own, there is no music whatsoever. I personally love to hear Leary speak, and while it?s nice to have some music in the background, Leary?s words are what is important. There?s definitely a bitter tone to this album at times. Leary was in the middle of some legal trouble at the time, and the stress from that situation can be heard on the tape. Nonetheless, whether he is in a good mood or not, Timothy Leary?s words carry a lot of weight.

Since there are no songs on this album, I will type some of my favorite quotes from the album.......

Quote:



- "The situation here, is not completely serene at the moment. Because this quiet island is under siege for the last few days, the last few weeks, the last few months. This peaceful surrounding, has been surrounded by government agents, wire-tappers, anxious and angry politicians. Why should this be? The reason for this siege of serenity is because i?ve gotten myself in trouble. I?m in trouble, because I know too much. "

-"There?s a long litany of psychedelic chemicals. All of which, interestingly enough, are based on organic or botanical chemicals. And the the powerful drugs that we now have to expand human consciousness. Each few months, the biochemists come up with a new molecule, which talks directly, eloquently and powerfully to the human nervous system, opens it up and changes it."

-"What is consciousness? Consciousness is energy which is received and decoded by a physiological structure. There are as many levels of consciousness available to the human being as there are structures. Anatomical organs inside the body for decoding different sorts of energies"

-"My first psychedelic experience occurred in Mexico in 1960. At that time I was a whiskey drinking, cigarette smoking, symbol addicted psychologist. I ate 7 of the sacred mushrooms of Mexico, and within a half hour, was spun into a psychological laboratory, 2 billion years old, which laughed at my pretensions and predicted knowledge. Since that time, 6 years ago, I have done almost nothing but attempt to understand and communicate this experience."

-"(in reference to the Harvard psilocybin project) We gave these drugs to 36 prisoners, who looked at the cops and robbers game through the brutal microscope of expanded consciousness and laughed, and gave up crime."

-"The embarrassing truth is that consciousness is a chemical phenomenon. Everything that you have ever experienced, you have experienced because of a chemical reaction in your nervous system. Memory is a chemical process. Learning is a chemical process. Stupidity is a chemical process. "Stupor" is a chemical process. Normal awareness is a chemical process. "

-"Psychedelic drugs threaten the solidity and durability of our stereotypes, but that?s all they endanger."

-"The man with a microscope in his eye may be confused. He may stumble. He may cry out in ecstacy or alarm, but he?s got too much going on inside of him to be concerned with pushing other people around."

-"A good philosopher is a change agent, and naturally is going to offend everyone that doesn?t want things to change. Most great philosopher have always spent time in prison."








I give this cd 4 out of 5 electric sugarcubes, just because it?s Leary.

I love reading and listening to his words. I'll have to look into getting some of his recordings soon. I like what he says about DNA and what it really has to do with who we are. We just went over DNA in my PLB class up here, I'd love to show my professor some of Leary's ideas about DNA and communication, but he'd think I was nuts!

He talks a lot about DNA on this album.

Your professor may think you're nuts, but who cares? Leary will be considered a Christ like figure one day anyway.

I really like what he says about his first experience. I can relate after my recent trip.

I have never read anything written by him. I am going to get a book.

Thanks for posting that!

I see what everyone is saying. It is so hard to form an opinion when you see both sides so clearly!

You mean "Beyond Life With Timothy Leary". I've heard some of the tracks on that album. I really like "A Tale of the Tribe" with Allen Ginsberg. He really puts everything into perspective about Leary and his attempt to save the world.
