to many of the songs on this album are taken from the fake 'live' album where the studio versions were soaked in reverb and bookended with canned applause. The compilers obviously had access to the superior album cuts but for some bizzare reason thought not to use them.
No attempt has been made to improve the sound and many of the tracks are repeated.
It's OK but you get what you pay for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sound can improve, but material, booklet and price are unbeatable, 26 Nov 2007

This review is from: His Eye Is On The Pyramid (Audio CD)
Let's agree quality of sound it not the best thing to rate this item high. Nevertheless, the compilation is quite good indeed and, though some 'false live takes' are included, the Bo Diddley's "Before you accuse me" is from a proper concert. The Roky Erickson contributions are seminal -and unfortunately poorly advertised - for rock history and he is famous by being one of those rock casualties that lsd left. However, it is important to balance his work -and high-flying lyrics and vocals - with the great sound the rest of the band created, including Hall's jug and the rythm session.
The 13ths' big picture can really be catched with this compilation. And the booklet is very complete. A good introduction and perhaps exit, given than only few rarities or bootlegs may be added to the collection of this great -and crazy- band. The highlight include the famous "You're gonna miss me", "She lives (in a time of her own", two takes of "Roller-Coaster", "Slip inside this house", Dylan's "(It's all over) Baby Blue" - beautiful version-, "Splash 1" and nice material from other members of the band, like Sutherland's "Street Song".
