The records discussed in GATHERING OF THE TRIBE: ACID explore the key aspects of the acid experience, these being principally the way in which psychedelic drugs intensify sensory impressions (sound and vision); the ability to experience different dimensions simultaneously and mystical dimensions where the individual feels unified with the cosmos. This music also explores aspects of the infamous 'bad trip' or the 'terror that was wrong', where positive feelings are replaced by paranoia, depression, anxiety and disturbing flashbacks, the 'other side of anguish'.
About the series:
GATHERING OF THE TRIBE is an on-going series about the mysterious power of sound and tone, with each book devoted to reviewing records that reveal divine and cosmic laws, voyages to other worlds or use sound as a tool for transformation. While highly selective, the series offers a practical guide to the ultimate occult record collection.
