Following on from the extraordinary success of the band's 10-CD box set, which has boosted the band's already legendary reputation; this set is the definitive single CD introduction to the very best of the Elevators. The 16 page booklet includes a detailed analysis by band biographer Paul Drummond of the extraordinary history of the band told through their singles.

I'm sure the content is identical, but I liked the idea of having the full set of digipack editions of the Elevators' reissue series. This whole series has been a major, historic event for fans.
This import is a jewel case edition, unlike the domestic digipack. Not a huge quibble, but I think it would've been nice to have this mentioned in the product info. I'd have paid the small difference to have a matching set in my bookcase.
The annotations are astounding, with a scholarly attention to detail worthy of a bibliographic monograph. Great sound, great package, great price.

I'm sure the content is identical, but I liked the idea of having the full set of digipack editions of the Elevators, all matching on my bookshelf.
This domestic version is the digipack, while the import is a jewel case edition. Not a real complaint, but I think it would've been nice to have this mentioned in the product info.
I got it yesterday and listened to it once all the way through. It's pretty bad. First, it's a very, very LOUD CD. I had my amp on 25% - 30% power and it was pushing the LEDs waaaaaaay up there. It's like they took these old, analog, recordings and tried to make them sound as loud and brilliant as something from today that was recorded digitally for CD release.
Second, the mix is pushed waaaay up into the treble part of things. This makes the recordings sound brittle and shrill.
The combination of the first and second deliberate mess-ups make for that you can FORGET listening to this CD at a loud volume. 13th Floor Elevators not at a loud volume? What's the point? Additionally, the first and second deliberate mess ups have ruined this disc.
There's a TON of hiss on some of these recordings. Howcum the Roky CD Club's versions of the SAME songs don't have as much? Oh, yes, this version boosted the sound waaaaay up and jacked the mix up into the treble area. So the hiss got magnified.
The bass guitar actually distorts on some songs. Scarlet and Gold is messing unlistenable because of it. MESSING UNLISTENABLE! The bass guitar is just this low BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM throughout the song. It's messed up; a horror show.
Let me tell you people, I'm EARS OF STONE KILOH and I can hear this hoot! And I'm playing my music through a top of the line system. You've all seen my video.
Charly? Drummond? Who-the-mess-ever! YOU MESSED UP!
The French EP is a drastically different mix on some songs:
Reverbeation - Roky's voice is louder, the jug is mixed down and the band is quieter. It just sound plain different
You're Gonna Miss Me - Can't hear much difference.
Fire Engine - Different and cleaner mix than IA.
Tried to Hide - the band is toned down a bit and Roky is enhanced.
But the French EP is no reason to buy this CD. Save your money. Or spend the money and see for yourself. I could give a hoot.
What the mess? Who did this? Whose fault is this?
I'll put all of this on the blog soon.
Listen to this piece-o'-crap and then listen to the Roky CD Club's version. I rest my case.
