The IC hypnosis recording is for sale on Ebay for a lot of money. We're trying to get some more information from the seller.

This recording is definitely interesting. The Control movie first made us aware of the recording and Grant Gee's documentary, I believe, released the best bits to a wide audience. To my mind there's little point discussing whether this recording should be on sale when the highlights have already been made commercially available on a sell through DVD.

I do think we're in danger of treating this recording too seriously. If you read Hooky's book it's clear the band enjoyed pissing about and I can't help thinking this hypnosis thing might have been a bit of a laugh at the time.

I think we all sort of knew that the full tape was in existence. A LOT of stuff is popping up, lately. I wonder why.

I really think it's stupid when people saying listening to this tape is disrespectful. No more disrespectful than listening to "Ceremony" or "In a Lonely Place", especially the latter. It's not like Ian is saying he's going to kill himself during the interview. They definitely weren't taking the piss, but it wasn't hell on earth, either. Bernard certainly would not have shared the tape (I assume he has the original, given how he recorded it) if he felt it was too deep and concerning to share. No worse than it getting into the public's eye, especially given how a snippet of it has already been shared in the documentary. No respect to Ian? We worship the fucking ground he walks on, as indicated by the Yorkshire article 350125 wrote.

Wallflower,
I mean no respect to Ian if you try to make a money on things like this. No disrespectful if you just listen it or share..

Shipman's couch was removed from the ebay listings by the site itself.

The woman's an opportunistic idiot and I'm glad they've taken this stance - although they've probably only done it because the story went public.

I wonder what happened to the hypnosis tape .... i for one would have been fascinated to listen to it ...given the snippet that was included in the documentary

i wonder how long the recording of it is ?

There is so little audio / video interview material in existence .... this would probably have been the longest recording of Ian and Barney that has surfaced/

Let's save the Shipman couch crap for another thread, shall we?

Did someone buy the Transgression tape?

The description was very vague. He didn't mention whether it was the full recording or just bits & bats and for that kind of money you'd think the seller would take the trouble to do so. Odd.

My opinion is that the full recording is now historical and as such of much interest if the story will finally be told in proper detail. But I can certainly understand it can also still be considered very personal and not meant, or never meant, for public consumption. On the other hand, if you don't hear Ian singing loud and clear about very personal and private feelings and emotions *exactly* for public consumption then you're thick as a brick. So. Just my opinions not that anyone asked lol. ;-)

Miraculous! Thank you, Bernard. It'd be nice to hear the tape to go with the transcript, but my desire to hear the full recording has significantly decreased, now.

It's a past lives regression session. Beyond that I don't want to post any spoilers.

I'm sorry . I thought this was a discussion board. To like, discuss things, like, I dunno, the fact that now there's a transcript that some of us have been able to read and would, you know, like to share their insights and reactions , like.
I can follow Twitter for pronouncements, yes?

Sign me miffed.

Hi imkc1

The book is out in a few days time and I wouldn't want to spoil anyone's enjoyment by posting highlights, snippets or best bits of any of the chapters online. Nobody would thank me for that once the book was out. I simply wanted to say the wait for the hypnosis recording is pretty much over as the transcript is being published officially. 

Not sure what you mean by Twitter, but sorry you're miffed.
