Thirteenth Floor Elevators - 'Live' (Collectables)

"There's one OTHER 13th Floor 'live' reissue I've heard that is worse that this one.'Live' is actually somewhat tolerable,that is IF you're an open-minded music fan.From the sound of it,I'm about 98% sure that 'Live' is a fake live recording.Either that OR their sound man is three-quarters deaf.Now,if you would like to check out some really great sounding all American psychedelia,get yourself a copy of the three 'actual/legit' Elevator's reissues,on the Collectables label.Which are 'Psychedelic Sounds Of The...'('66),'Easter Everywhere'('67) and 'Bull Of The Woods'('68).Keep in mind that ALL their other releases are either live,re-edits or cheezy compilations."

"While the first two studio albums are definitely of better sound quality, this album highlights the Elevators' ability to rock out in a live setting. What makes this album truly interesting, however, is the fact that it is actually a studio recording with crowd noise overdubbed onto it. Thus, this is almost like listening to a rehearsal of the group in the studio, albeit with crowd sounds. Don't let this album scare you away from further exploration of the 13th Floor Elevators. Definitely get the first two - they will make this one that much more enjoyable."
