Pink Floyd Pulse tour LIVE 1994 33rd row.  It was a religious experience in every way.
LIFE is not a race to the grave with the intention of arriving safely
in a pretty and well-preserved body, but, rather to skid in broadside,
thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--WOW! WHAT A
RIDE!!!

Rolling Stones' Beggars Banquet album was a ritual each & every trip. And we wore that 33rpm out baby!

I've never done acid... mostly because I'm a control freak and would lose my shit... hell, I take two hits off a bong, and I'm in the corner screaming, "Carpetbaggers got me by the brain-banana!"  It's not fun.

But last summer, most of which was spent coked up... I forced my friends to listen to this song on a loop until they were ready to kill me.

I did a little cocaine dance to it, too.

Not a big fan of concerts, especially those outdoor events in early 70s. So freaking hot and thirsty. And all the filthy hippies. (of which I was one). Came back and cut my hair.
But the best concerts I have been to
1.John Fogerty/Aaron Neville
2.David Allan Coe
3.Elton
4.Guess Who
5.The Byrds(three times)
6.Lou Reed
7.Led Zep
The rest sucked.
While we are at it,the absolutely most fabulous musical of all time is "miss Saigon". 4 times.

After a hit of "blotter" and "windowpane" you would be amazed at how intense Disney's Fantasia is, when watched in the first row of an enormous theater.  After the first viewing, we did a "Black Beauty" (speed) and stayed for three more showings.

For music it would be Pink Floyd, Emerson Lake and Palmer, Rick Wakeman, The Who, King Crimson and about another 300 bands or so.

Kelly, wtf is frogblotter. The best I ever heard was  the locals in Negri(1970)l were selling Sivler Acid, it was wrapped in aluminun foil,thus the silver. Between revolutions Negril was very nice in early 70s,sort of scary when the tanks rolled in.
Saw Humble Pie in the Rubber Bowl in Akron.
Marsal Tucker,heard it in a love song,whoa.
watkins glen was a freaking hell hole

I was always partial to Cocteau Twins "Victorialand" on acid in college.  Later it was exclusive early era Chicago house music and lots of disco lights and dried ice fog... and maybe a can of ethyl sprayed in a rag and held firmly to my nose while on acid.

It's a fairly versatile drugs really, though sometimes the ride can be quite rough if you get hold of something of dicey quality.  I still prefer liquid MDMA and horse tranquilizer.

  The last time I did acid was at an NBA game. Now that was crazy. You just sit there having thousands of body orgasms,watching the Dr. dunk, and basketballs going everywhere,with people serving you cocktails. very nice.

Well, indeed I've not done any in ages, and amusingly the last time was in San Juan in '99 but it had been imported by some warped queen from Texas who I spent an evening with.  He tried to have sex with me numerous times while I was tripping and I had to keep shoving him away and exclaiming "You don't understand!  I'm Jodie Foster in "Contact"!!!"

Tripping and music, wow! what a great combo! I like to trip to most anything by Enigma, and Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine works too. And I can't leave out The Floyd. Holst's The Planets also is great too... Also, went to Wigstock on 'shrooms once. Yowsa!!!

Jefferson Airplane, the first 1 - 3 Jefferson Starship albums (before they became an 80s commercial success), lots of old Beatles records, Bob Dylan, Philip Glass, Joni Mitchell (up to an including Blue), Mozart's piano sonatas (especially Glenn Gould's wicked renditions) and I'm embarrassed to admit I used to listen to Donna Summer endlessly at one point and "fairy tale high" is about the only lyrical remnant I can think of (Love to love you baby made me vomit).

That's about 1/2 my list but I have less than 1/2 a brain so it must suffice.

Thompson Twins?  I may have dreamed I liked them.  Gang of Four, Talking Heads, Martha and the Muffins, Kraaftwerk, Devo... more may come back as brain swelling decreases.

I'd probably listen to Guns 'N' Roses if the acid was good enough.

Ahhh!  In high school, the period during which I did more acid that any other, Uriah Heep was one of my favorite bands.  About 10+ years ago I excavated a few of their LPS from the musty box they've been packed in for at least 15 years.  I tried to listen to each album but cringed so dreadfully I feared I might develop palsy before the first song had played. 

I think this was the only time as an adult I despised music loved in adolescence.  I mean, I'll even hum along to Donna Summer if it's the right tune, so my standards are obviously pretty low.

Wait, I'm channeling... M -- Pop Musik and Official Secrets Act were albums I wore the grooves out of...

Hey... Thompson Twins were fun up to the 2nd album.  Though even on their worst commercial day after that they weren't half as bad as "We Built This City" Starship, so let's NOT go there, Miss Slick.  You do not want the reads.

jack, you and i are on the same page. did the fantasia thing, then graduated to 2001 space odessey. saw a double feature at the drive in's of straw dogs and walking tall. so much violence i thought i was on acid by the time i left, and nearly ripped my driver side window out with the speaker. loved dr J as well, saw him against michael at the spectrum during his farewell tour. gotts say though, his days with the nets were incredible. for the guy who asked what the heck is a frog blotter, picture kids cartoon sticker paper with a hundred pictures of frogs on it, then they placed a drop of liquid acid (hallucinagenic) on each frog. funny thing was the night we saw YES we went outside and while running through a rainstorm came upon a huge puddle filled with bull frogs and listened to them sing for an hour.......... :o what a trip!
for the guy who was at watkins glen, we sat watching thousands of hippies desend upon the camp grounds all day friday while doing window pain thinking nixon was getting us all together to drop a bumb on us and rid the country of all the anti war protesters....... wow, were we f___ed up! ::)
thought steve marriot of humble pie was even more awesome than mick jagger......until the crowd stormed the stage and ended the show.... what a bummer!

thunter34, i would like to dito your reference to moody blues. when my older brother came home from college on breaks, we would go to bed (we shared a bedroom) listening to days of future past, in search of the lost cord, and on a threshold of a dream...... no acid needed to lay back and just take in all those great lyrics and melodies. glad to see the moodies are coming back to our area again this year. we also added to that mix steve millers children of the future.
my love of the moodies though never fades. thanks to xm radio top tracks and big tracks, these old songs still make road trips a real pleasure.
all who have posted here have made this one enjoyable blast from the past!
thanks for the rush!

Moody Blues, is still my favorite group. I Had seen them in concert, several years back, I've got everything they ever recorded !! and your right, you don't need any acid for the Moody Blues !!, Just get comfortable and lay back. I hope they come around to the Clearwater area again. I saw them at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater.

General pharmaceutical playlist would include -

Cream, The Doors, Yes, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Pet Shop Boys, Prince, Red Krayola/Crayola, Traffic, Depeche Mode, New Order, Bowie…

Strange, isn't it, how music can be such a big part of memories, experiences.. ?

Quite a few albums, like Blood Sugar Sex Magik (rhc peppers) or The The's Mind Bomb/Dusk.. & certain jeff buckley tracks etc, I now have trouble listening to without feeling distinctly uncomfortable. Rather intense olifactory flashbacks, to that throat-catching/stomach turning smell of heroin. Shame, really.

Acoustic Ladyland (kinda experimental jazz..?) now some of their stuff would be, er, interesting… :)

for all you hendrix fans who have brought up electric ladyland, lets not forget band of gypsy's.
only thing that might cause me to drop another tab this late in life is watching cirque performance of beatles "love"........ on dvd in the comfort of my home, that is!

I think this thread is giving me flashbacks.   :D

Yes, the moodies have some harmonies that can cut right through you.  And like with Hendrix, no tabs are really required to get one's mind bent.

The songs I listed up above were actually played in the order by my "guides" to send me on a great journey during on of my earliest trips.

I miss Tim Buckley

If you want a MAJOR MAJOR acid trip, his "Starsailor" album (1970) is required listening, plus it's where the original "Song to the Siren" came from that was later covered by This Mortal Coil.  But the entire "Starsailor" is trippy as shit, especially "The Healing Festival"

Has anyone ever smoked salvia?

Everything goes cubist for 10 minutes... then it wears off.

The first time I did it, I smoked way too much... and I thought I was in Alice in Wonderland.

We were listening to "Cvalda" by Bjork from Dancer in the Dark.  It was sort of amazing.

The room came up in a tidal wave to "clatter clash clack!"

Very interesting.  And legal, too.

Hey... Thompson Twins were fun up to the 2nd album.  Though even on their worst commercial day after that they weren't half as bad as "We Built This City" Starship, so let's NOT go there, Miss Slick.  You do not want the reads.

I specifically excluded that commercial chimera which absorbed several of the original JAers, and Gracie didn't put up with the whole success bit very long.  Blows Against the Empire, Baron Von Tollbooth and the Chrome Nun, Sunrise -- what is the album with Easter on it?  "All I did for Easter, all I did is paint some eggs."  I can't quote my favorite lines without upsetting my Christian friends.

I even own Gracie's exquisitely painful and embarrassing solo album, Manhole.  You can't say she doesn't have a kick-ass sense of humor!!

Must you give ideas to old druggies like me?  I'll be on the lookout for salvia for months.

Just don't go to the Erowid Vaults or I'm sure you'll locate where to order it on line.

Thanks, kate!! I don't know how I could have forgotten. Aerie is still one of my favorite, albeit dated, songs.

In the early 80s I was being harassed by telephone so called Ma Bell to change my number and not have it linked to the old number.  As an added precaution I asked to list the number in my roommate's name: Grace Slick.  Except for a few confused locals calling to ask if I was Gracie over the years this plan worked well.  For one thing, as soon as a caller asked for "Mr. or Mrs. Slick" I could honestly say "They're not here" and quickly hang up.  Many telemarketers were foiled.

About 1998 or so as the IntraNests continued creating a global database of trash and treasures I began to receive calls from all around the country from people who thought 1) Gracie would publish her number and 2) live in N.O., a city she carefully avoided after JA was busted here in the 60s. 

One day I came home to listen to voice mail left by a friend who is a public librarian in Seattle, calling on behalf of a patron doing research on her Grace.  Bonita (liberrian) didn't even realize she'd called my number so I emailed her and asked she let the inquirer down gently.  I received a letter from a movie producer inquiring about film rights to my autobiography, Somebody to love, but my boringly staid attorney assured me I could not legally draft a 4 page pamphlet entitled "Somebody to Love" and negotiate with the producer.

Sorry for going OT but I did do a hell of a lot of acid listening to Gracie and pals.
