A Seminal Classic That Everyone Should Buy,
This review is from: The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators (Audio CD)
I first heard this album at a friends house around 1978/79. In those dim distant days I was a bit of a lost soul when it came to music but the opening track "You're Gonna Miss Me" stayed in my head for ages. It's the same track as opens "High Fidelity" and there's a good chance you have seen the film if you like music and you'll know what it sounds like.
Very strident chords, probably ranking with Pretty Vacant as a really memorable opening...
The next song is in a similar vein...however, the band show that they can play slow stuff as well..Splash 1 (Now I'm Home) is a cool ballad, which follows...
These are the highlights, there isnt a duff track on the album.
It'll be worth waiting till Charly release it on CD... I have a copy on Vinyl of course, but the record player is broken....
