THE LIMITED EDITION COLOURED LP (1000 COPIES WORLDWIDE) COMES IN YELLOW VINYL! Ken Kesey's Ultra Rare 1966 studio recording of the Acid Test w/ The Grateful Dead.

Legendary documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area Acid Test scene from 14 hours of the actual trip (recorded in a studio).

Lots of amazing mind games and word play with Ken Kesey and Ken Babbs in good form. Ad libbed poetry, fractured harmonica solos, tape loops and the Grateful Dead lurking in the background.

Originally released in March 1966 in a pressing of less than 500, this live-in-the-studio recording was intended to recreate the live acid test shows for listeners.

Gratedul Dead and Ken Babb were in attendance at the recording, and this new release will have liner notes by Babb.
