If you're into "out there" psychedelic stuff, you'd like this album. I think there's even some proto-techno, or "house" dance music (or whatever) in this with the bedding of beats drapped with psych-noises and dialogue from Timothy Leary.
The aim of the game-(game) is to feel-(feel) real-(real) good-(good).

Really a pretty silly album but it is indeed entertaining when only playing it once every ten years or so, which is most likely the last time I played it. The opening piece has Leary snippets over a jam session with Stephen Stills, John Sebastian, Hendrix (on bass?), and Buddy Miles. The last two pieces are tape collages featuring Leary telling you can even be The Beatles if you want. Far out man.

Astro-biologists, philosopher priests, healers, observers of the fleshly heavens and cosmic dancers dig this recording consequently DJs /producers sample up innumerable quotes especially "Turn On." Pressed to wax in the Age of Aquarius, Dr. Leary's psychedelic monologue "What Do You Turn On When You Turn On?" identifies our brains as "the galactic headquarters of the nervous system" and the locus of all social transformation. Other tracks feature prominent rock artists notably Jimi Hendrix but it is the monologue that offers the most for dance music activists.
