Sample from this album were used on the Skinny Puppy song "Left Hand Shake" from their album Last Rights. Leary agreed for the sample to be used but the copyright holder did not and the song was pulled from the album. Samples were also used on the Nine Inch Nails remix album Fixed.

There were two albums with this name: the 1967 'Original Motion Picture Soundtrack' - Mercury Records 21131 (mono)/61131 (stereo) [3] - and a prior, 1966 version without music and a different narrative by Leary, possibly recorded at the Millbrook mansion - (ESP-Disk 1027).[4] On it Leary describes the recording location of his narrative as 'On the third floor of the Castilla Foundation' in New York, a countryside house used as a sanctuary for psychedelic experiences.
