50th Anniversary of the first Human Be-In

It was a privilege to be able to provide some audio and infrastructure support for this once, or second in a lifetime event. It was an honor to be a performer. I’m posting the first 2 hour segment of the recording untouched, so you may have to turn up the volume but beware there are some suddenly loud sections too. I have posted a timeline for all the participants so you can go to the parts you want to hear without having to listen to everything, when you are short on time 🙂
