“Lysergamides Revisited”. 
NIDA Research Monograph. 1994 Oct;146:52-73.
In discussions of hallucinogens in past years, most of the focus has been on phenethylamines and phenylisopropylamines, with a modest amount on tryptamines. A large gap always has been the lack of discussion of lysergamides. Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) is one’ of the classic hallucinogenic agents, but substituted lysergamides always have seemed to be largely ignored. The lysergamides have been investigated on several historical occasions, but the late 1950s witnessed most of the recent work (Abrahamson 1959; Cerletti and Doepfner 1958; Gogerty and Dille 1957; Isbell et al. 1959). Within the past 8 years, there has been an attempt to fill in some obvious gaps that exist in the understanding of lysergamide-type hallucinogens.
