Ken Kesey was an American novelist, essayist, and countercultural figure. He is the author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and a founding member of the Merry Pranksters, a group who was known for spreading early experiments in LSD.
Originally released in March 1966, this ultra-rare album is the work of Merry Pranksters Ken Kesey and Ken Babbs. This album is a studio recording of the Acid Test with The Grateful Dead. A documentation of the 1965-66 Bay Area Acid Test scene. 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.
This package includes two other Ken 7”’s and a set of 8 x 10 in. glossies depicting drug paraphernalia and Hippies. An incredible package for fans of 1960s counterculture.
