WTF? Telepathy experiment

The run of 6 shows at Port Chester from Feb 18 through Feb 24, 1971 were dubbed the ESP Experiment. Various pictures were projected onto a screen behind the band and the audience was supposed to focus on these images and try to 'transmit' them psychically to a bunch of subjects in a nearby lab. Apparently it didn't work to well. Those damn hippies couldn't concentrate too long on anything much.

These shows were also among the first "Betty Boards" to surface into the mainstream. (Another useful fact to be gleaned from the Deadhead's Taping Compendium Vol 1)

WTF?

Telepathy experiment? You lost me there. I'll prolly buy Vault No.3 set when my tax refund turns up in a couple of weeks.

Hey, hey - very nice to hear from fellow DHs here and through email. Let's stay in touch and get together ASAP.

Cheers, Kenny

Egging on

Kenny, please forget your prejudices and review it. You get to recount the telepathy experiment story for a start. And this is the first show without Mickey Hart.

Happy Trails

dead channel buying is cool

I've bought quite a bit of stuff over the years primarily from the Dead shop. Only once did the goods fail to arrive, contacted the shop and they were resent.

That's not theft that's super service.

Ah well each to his own. I'm

Ah well each to his own. I'm probably a bit hyper as three of those teams are going around in the next six hours or so. :) Seems there may be more of us here in Melbourne than any of us figured. I'll be interested to see how this pans out over the next copupla weeks.

I'm enjoying the GD Radio Hours shows.

*******

It's simple: Go Socceroos, Go Victory, Go All Blacks, Go Storm. And turn up the volume. And then some more.

Another from the woodwork

Yet another DH settled in Melbourne.
I like the stuff about the Socceroos but the other stuff?

ME TOO

Their procedures are just not up to scratch. In my case, I eventually got it all sorted. The postage costs are the killer but it seems that USPS have hiked their prices. I just had an Amazon-Marketplace order refunded because the seller couldn't afford to fund the postage out of what Amazon allowed them. Those GD Taping Compendiums are heavy books!
