Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • 13th Floor Elevators includes: Roky Erickson, Tommy Hall, Stacy Sutherland.
  • Recorded at Summit Sound Studio, Dallas, Texas. Includes original release liner notes by Lelan Rogers.
  • This release features a special gatefold LP style CD sleeve.
  • 13th Floor Elevators: Roky Erickson (vocals, guitar); Stacy Sutherland (guitar); Benny Thurman (bass); John Ike Walton (drums); Tommy Hall.
  • Recorded in 1966.
  • The 13th Floor Elevators might have been remembered simply as one-hit wonder of the '60s--the Texas equivalent of the Count 5, for example--had it not been for two things. First, they were the only rock band in history to feature a guy playing a continuous obligato on electric jug, which added a deeply weird element to even their most straightforward three-chord rockers. Second, and perhaps more importantly, they were fronted by a genuine howling weirdo and cult figure-to-be, the incomparable Roky Erickson.
  • Roky, who took more acid trips than Jerry Garcia had hot meals, was nonetheless a gifted songwriter who sang every word (however bizarre) as if his life depended on it. This debut album--reputedly the first rock album on which the word 'psychedelic' appears-- features the band's sole national hit, the garage punk classic "You're Gonna Miss Me." The other material here is nearly as good, however, including the Stones-y "Reverberation" and the oft-covered "Fire Engine."
