I WAS THERE WHEN

"I HAVE HAD THIS ALBUM IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER FOR OVER THIRTY YEARS. I GAVE IT 4 STARS BECAUSE ONE HAD TO BE THERE TO FULLY ENJOY THIS BAND TO ME THE ALBUM IS A 5 STAR. I NOW HAVE IT ON CD AND IT'S GREAT. ESPECIALLY THE LONG JAMMIN' STUFF. I SAW THE DRUMMER, STEVE ABOUT 9 YEARS BACK. AND HE DID'NT EVEN HAVE A COPY OF THE ALBUM AT THAT TIME, IF YOU LIKE GARGE BAND HEAD MUSIC OF THE 60's THIS IS A CLASSIC."
Awesome Houston psych punk!

"I wasn't lucky enough to be around at the time to see this band, like the other reviewer, but I would agree that this should be a five star item. So why did I also give it a four? I only did that because the sound quality, while not bad, is not of the highest re-master quality that I'm sure many people would expect after so many better labels have been putting out this genre in the last ten years or so. Collectables usually didn't have the greatest packaging jobs, either, and in this case they include a fold-out cover of the original album, but not much anything else.
The music is another reason for a four. This only falls short of a five because the influence of their pals, the 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS, is more than obvious. They even attempt to use the water jug on an track that's not an ELEVATORS cover (though they do one of those as well). Aside from this, the album is fantastic. Could I say four and a half? Like the ELEVATORS, the LOST & FOUND came from the cool Texas psych scene that produced both the most raucous garage stomp and the most acid-drenched psychedelic ballads. You should check out a good sampling of this scene on the International Artists comp or the Houston Hallucinations comp.
This album has ten tracks and is better than the majority of 60s underground reissued on Collectables over the years. For the cheap price I always see it listed here, I would totally recommend getting a copy."
