The box set contains all the Elevators four albums.
Luckily, some real live recordings are presented here, from San Franciso in '66, and somewhere in Texas in '67. The quality isn't amazing, but when there are so few legit live recordings of the Elevators (if any), this set is a treasure.
All the original album material has been remastered, and sounds like you always wished it could.
The real bonus here are the unreleased studio tracks, none of which I had ever heard, and only ever read about two.
The highlight of these tracks for me is 'Wait for my Love', which is a completely new version of 'Till Then' from the 'Bull of the Woods' album, and shows the Elevators ina completely new light.
I could go on, but if you've ever heard the name of this band and wondered what they sound like, this is your time...buy this CD and play it over, and over again.
If you already own Elevators albums, then this box set covers every part you never heard, and vastly improves the originals.
Most of the Elevators are still alive and still busy...it would be nice to think a huge royalty check can finally drop into their pockets, and their influence on much of today's music can finally be acknowledged.
Buy or Die, as they say...

A great band, that I heard some years ago and re-discovered by accident. If you like the original 60's Psychedelia, these guys are pioneers.Published on 17 Sept. 2009 by Mr. Jeff James Fish
I had heard of the band for ages in a vague way but never heard the music. If you like this genere and the mid-late 60s sound this is an excellent package. Read morePublished on 10 Mar. 2009 by The Outsider
