70’s Goa Hippie Party with Young Goa Gil Mixing Tapes

goa-party-70s

Following our post on the recent reunion of the original Goa hippie tribe, ufonaut Benyo went back in time and returned with some rare footage of a Goa hippie party from the 70’s with Goa Gil mixing tapes. So here is how it all started:

GUYS, UPDATE: Sorry Benyo, but Marcus Robbin at COGOA says (and sorry Marcus, Benyo was only credited for submitting this video):

It was not Benyo who “went back in time and returned with some rare footage”. It was me who discovered it in a basement in New York back in 2000, restored it for the pupose of incorporating it in my documentary “Last Hippie Standing”, released in 2002. The sequence in question is entirely taken from that movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1sbLPBX9RW8

UPDATE 2: As noted by Pranic below, apparently the material originally comes from the late Cleo Odzer.

    Hey guys,

    I appreciate your interest in the old Super8 footage from Goa in the early seventies on your webpage http://www.earthlymission.com/70s-goa-hippie-party-with-young-goa-gil-mixing-tapes/

    It would have been nice though, if you at least could have given the correct credits for it, as well as your source channel Cogoa. Review is highly appreciated! Thank you!

    Cheers,
    Marcus
