Much more than just a survey of "acid rock" or the Haight-Ashbury scene, this book explores the fascinating evolution of "head music" from the days of Ken Kesey's acid tests to psychedelic hip-hop, from acid house music to rave culture, and beyond. "Kaleidoscope Eyes" is indispensable for younger readers eager to learn their psychedelic lore as well as forty-something ( or even fifty-something) fans willing to explore the psychedelia of contemporary bands like Flaming Lips, My Bloody Valentine, Oasis, and many more
