"Love Serve Remember" - Near Mint 6 LP Box

This listing is for a rare copy of the 1973 Ram Dass ‘Love Serve Remember’ box set. These recordings were made on 4 successive nights in the summer of 1972 at the WBAI Pacifica radio station in New York City. There are 6 records included, as well a booklet describing the event.

This collection was only available by mail order and not many copies were made. The vinyl is in near mint condition and looks like it was hardly, if ever, played. The booklet is also in excellent condition. The box itself is very good with average wear around the edges and light wrinkling to the back. This is just the thing to use to warm up for the Fields Festival in August! Some wild-eyed chanting and good vibe psych folk. $60.

Here is the Wikipedia skinny on Ram Dass:
Richard Alpert (born April 6, 1931), also known as Baba Ram Dass, is a contemporary spiritual teacher who wrote the 1971 bestseller Remember, Be Here Now. He is well known for his personal and professional association with Timothy Leary at Harvard University in the early 1960s. He is also known for his travels to India and his relationship with the Hindu guru Neem Karoli Baba, and for founding the charitable organizations Seva Foundation and Hanuman Foundation.
