Music Of The Spheres - The Ultimate 13th Floor Elevators' Vinyl

Texas was never a hub of U.S. psychedelic rock in the ’60s, but that state spawned one of the genre’s seminal acts. The 13th Floor Elevators only issued three proper studio LPs during their brief run, but those far-our records — including their influential 1966 debut, ‘The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators’ — expanded minds by mingling garage jangle, electric blues, folk strum and studio experimentation. Plus, what other rock band employed a full-time amplified jug player?,

Featuring the best Elevators‘ vinyl sound ever, this is a fitting – strictly limited (to 3000 only) – tribute to an iconic band and is available from the International Artists Records site only.
