“Lonely Faces” By Sammy Tippit (A young 22 year-old Babtist youth evangilist and the President and Founder of “God’s Love in Action” an Evangelistic Association for reaching gangs, militants, runaways, hippies and drug users for Christ.) and the Monroe 7, (vs. the Chicago 7?), (seven young people from Monroe, Louisiana that pushed a wheelbarrow of bibles all the way to Washington, DC, literally spreading the word of god across America.) Rainbow Records. Pretty tricky packaging. This record is like a sheep in wolves clothing.

Mind games

0c53_3.JPG

ACID TEST on Sound City Productions with Ken Kesey and The Merry Pranksters along with members of the Grateful Dead and others. Ultra rare original copy of drugged out noise experimental psych weirdness housed in paste-on cover with blank back.

From the Acid Archives: “Legendary documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area Acid Test scene “from 14 hours of the actual trip” (recorded in a studio). Shows the other side of acid culture which is fun, unpredictable and avant garde as opposed to the Leary camp’s solemn religious/ psychological approach. Lots of amazing mind games and word play with Kesey and Ken Babbs in good form, ad libbed poetry, fractured harmonica solos, tape loops and the Grateful Dead lurking in the background. Released in March 1966, just as the Pranksters were splitting for Mexico.”

What a stellar line-up of talent Mike Curb and MGM Records was able to pull together for this early “just say no” type PSA record. Both Arte Johnson and Alan Sues! (Those guys were always wasted!)
