Synopsis

Album Description
For the first time in 40 years, here it is in dangerously powerful MONO, exactly as it was intended: the stupefying debut album by Texas' heroic psychedelic point-men, the 13th Floor Elevators, on Sundazed's uncannily accurate high-definition vinyl! The unearthly banshee howl of Roky Erickson, the blistering guitar of Stacy Sutherland and the demented electric jug of Tommy Hall haven't sounded this scary since their glory days in the third eye of the lysergic hurricane!

CD Reviews

Best Psychadelic Group Ever
Michael P. Kirkpatrick | Houston | 11/09/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The powerful yet simple guitar and the novel sounding jug provide the perfect backdrop fop Roky Ericson's erie and melancholy voice spouting lyrics that resonate to this day. Way before their time and a nice blast from the past for me. I remember seeing them while still in high school at various venues around Houston. Good then, good now."
Devistating MONO!!!

"Justice for this garage/psychedlic CLASSIC has finally been served! Collectables reissued this on CD (in stereo) a while back and the sound quality was HORRIBLE to say the least, it sounded like it was mastered off a 2nd generation cassette tape. Then Italy's Get Back Records (a label known for it's shadiness) reissued it on LP (also in stereo) with slightly better results but still not quite up to par with other classic LP reissues. THEN Sundazed (bless their souls)reissues it in MONO from the best available mint copy of the original and it sounds AWESOME! I never realized the power of this LP until I heard it in this version, it's a whole new experience (really). The guitars are much more upfront in the mix, the electric jug is buried more in the backround (thank god!) and Roky's vocals sound better than ever! I can't say enough good things about the reissue. THANK YOU SUNDAZED!
Avoid any other reissue of this album if you can and get this one. You won't be sorry..."
