Product Description

Product Description

This album, the Elevators' debut from 1966 lays claim to being the first psychedelic rock album and is certainly the first to use the word' psychedelic' in its title. This version is the ultimate 2CD deluxe edition of the album. It features both the original mono version plus the original 1966 stereo mix in band's intended running order, the latter being different to the alternative stereo version used in the award-winning box set 'Sign of the Three Eyed Men'. The set also includes five hitherto unreleased alternative versions which are the producer/engineer Bob Sullivan's original stereo studio mixes. The recordings were remastered and remixed in 2007 by the original producer Walt Andrus and are now presented in a luxury rigid digibook edition with a detailed 16 page booklet written by band expert Paul Drummond. `The fearless trailblazers of psychedelia and one of the most kick-ass rock bands ever... For two or so years they burned with a flame so fierce that 40 years on they still remain an inspiration' -- Mojo

5.0 out of 5 stars Monophonic madness! 30 July 2008
Format:Vinyl
An absolutely essential purchase for any psych fan, purely for the reason that it represents the 1st time in over 40 years that the original MONO mix has been officially released!! As many will know, the mono mix is far superior to the stereo: more upfront, less reverb, a much better balance of sound. Short of $helling out for an original copy, here's an AFFORDABLE chance to hear this seminal album the way it was intended! Just like the mono 'Piper At The Gates Of Dawn', 'Velvet Underground & Nico' and many others, there really IS that much difference! Dig it immediately!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't dissmiss it on first glance 10 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
The ideas and theories that this band seemed to be deeply engaged in are some that many have an interest in but few seem to be able to translate. Their lyrics talk of mans spritual and philosophical progression and advancement in a beutifully poetic way, they were obviously well read and attempted to takle some exciting and interesting ideas within their intense and exciting sounThe whole album is incredible, highlights being Kingdom of heaven, Splash 1, Fire Engine, but they really are all great.

Eriksons haunting vioce seems drift across this album in an eerie and compeling manner, urging you to delve deeper in their world.

Easter everywhere is also an extremely good album and if tyour interested in them look out for the film 'Your gonna miss me' documenting the sad dissintigration of Erikson.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
One of the great 60's punk wreckords dosed and spiked with some crushed orangeaid kool krush lysergia. Rocky Erikson warps his mind around the lyrical delivery like a crazed man hanging onto a door handle as the rough hands of the state are trying to pry him off to for a "rest" in the local hospital. A problem that beset Rocky as he was arrested for the possession of one Cannabis cigarette led to 3 years of intensive psychiatric experimentation at the hands of the state who aimed to destroy his brain with their own forms of chemical and electrical intervention.

A travesty of attempted correction and coercion as they altered his mind for the worse. They down't laark long haaaairrrsss in Tix asss

This album was recorded pre confinement and catches the man in his prime psychedelicious primeval glory. The guitars fuzz, the harmonica burns a hole in the mouth and the lyrical delivery is demented whilst a strange warping sound appears in every track. 3 chord fuzz punkers that when it hit San Fran Cisco changed the it from laid back acoustic folk strummers into turned on blues plank bashers.

This was the true sound of the 60's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally, they have done it right. 10 Dec 2010
By Jim70
Format:Audio CD
The Thirteenth Floor Elevators are one of the great cult bands; shared around by generations of knowing music fans without ever taking a place in the limelight. If you've reached this page you probably already know that, so what more is there to say? Well, after years of having their (admittedly slim) musical archive asset-stripped by poor quality reissues, this is the proper, and properly remastered, edition of the album we have been waiting for. As far as I can tell this is the restored version of the album from last year's wilfully exclusive 'Sign of the 3 eyed men' box-set, now made available at a reasonable price for us regular punters who couldn't afford that luxury. For the first time, we can hear the dynamics of the band through the gloom and reverb of the original production. That was always part of their sound, to be sure, but now it sounds like a deliberate quality of shade and menace to the album rather than the mere murk of poor recording. The guitar lines are spikier, the bass runs are much clearer and Tommy Hall's jug still sounds like nothing else in rock. When all the psychedelic philosophy of the sleeve-notes was said and done, the Elevators were a strange meeting of pretty, Buddy Holly-style song structures with urgent modal riffing and, above it all, Roky Erickson's spectral vocals. Completists will appreciate the original stereo mix and some early, sharper studio mixes on the bonus disc ('Roller Coaster' being especially interesting) but it's the chance to hear the original album afresh that will make this most desirable for listeners.

5.0 out of 5 stars As psychedelic as it comes 2 Jun 2012
By Alan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Brilliant first album from the Elevators. Is sounds almost unhinged at times. If this kind of sixties music is your thing - pyschedelic garage rock with a bit of punk thrown in - then this is a must buy.
