Notes:

   This release reproduces the running order of the original LP using alternate takes. The sound is much better than on the Collectables or Decal releases; the songs were run through sound restoration software with impressive results.

   Kingdom of Heaven had to be omitted because there is no alternate or improved mix available. Following that are three songs from the Houston Demos sessions that are available here without the canned audience sounds added on the "Live" album.

   Then comes the only known alternate mix from the "Easter Everywhere" sessions, a great version of "Dust," followed by two Roky and Clementine Hall duets that may be from this session also. Following that are the 7 songs that are known to have been recorded for the never completed "Beauty And The Beast" LP. Three of these songs are familiar versions that appeared on the "Bull Of The Woods" LP, but all 7 are put together to get an idea of what "Beauty And The Beast" would have been like.

   Tracks 17,18 date from the Spring 1968 Beauty And The Beast sessions. There is a single existing copy of this 10"acetate. It was discovered at the former Gold Star Studios in the mid-1980's and was sold in a Goldmine magazine auction to a private collector in 1985. This acetate was the source of the previously lost/forgotten song I Don't Ever Want To Come Down which was first released on the Elevator Tracks LP in 1987.

   10. Roller Coaster

   11. I'm Down

   12. Gloria

   13. You're Gonna Miss Me (faded out to end show)

Notes:

   The 1984 show is taken from a first generation high bias cassette of the original beta cam recording. This is the complete show, and the sound is MUCH better then the two previously released pieces (Collectables 'Last Concert' and 'Live In Texas' - side 2). The show is total high energy, Roky is in great voice, the band kicks ass, and the crowd of over 1000 Elevators/Roky fans is loving it. The band: Roky Erickson: vocals, guitar; Greg "Catfish" Forrest, guitar; Ronnie Leatherman, bass; John Ike Walton, drums.

   The 13th Floor Elevators on KAZZ-FM is from a tape of unknown generation. This is the complete 30-minute radio show in original order with lots of historically interesting announcer comments, and I believe it is rather rare in this uncut form. The recording methods were obviously primitive, but the band with its original line-up are at their peak, 'Roller Coaster' and 'Gloria' are fantastic. "After you trip life opens up" - on the Texas air waves in early 1966!

   The recordings sound better on the LP "The Original Sounds Of", but they are not as complete as on this release. Also, the incomplete version of "You're Gonna Miss Me" is here, and is missing from the afore mentioned LP. It is mostly unedited, with tuning, as well as comments from DJ Rim Kelly.

   The full tape of the KAZZ-FM broadcast has now been made available and shows some differences vs. the edited versions as presented on the "Original Sounds"/"Demos Everywhere" bootlegs. The full tape is exactly 30 minutes long and includes DJ talk and a version of "You're Gonna Miss Me" which was left off the bootlegs entirely. The tape has been confirmed as a PA recording, though done primitively.

   Roky Erickson: vocals, rhythm guitar; Stacy Sutherland: lead guitar; Tommy Hall: amplified jug; Benny Thurman: bass; John Ike Walton: drums.

   20. You're Gonna Miss Me

   21. Roller Coaster

Notes:

   Number 7 is something really special! Really Special! Special! This is a processed clone of a known 2nd gen soundboard recording of the famous "Avalon '66" recording. This quality BLOWS AWAY ALL that came before including the original, French label boot. This is the definitive version. If that wasn't sick enough, we added on the speed corrected Sump'n Else TV Show tracks. These are the same recordings Sundazed botched by putting out at too fast a speed. These are slowed down to the correct pitch so Roky and crew don't sound like Alvin And The Chipmunks.

Notes:

   Roky CD Club Issue Number 8 is a CD of two 1970's reunions. One is from Mother Earth in Austin on 2/11/73. This doesn't include Stacy or Tommy. The band sounds out of tune and out of practice. Still, it has moments and this band does sound the closest to the original group of all the reunions. The second part is Ol' Dog Saloon, Ingram, TX, 5/28/77. This has Stacy, John Ike, Ronnie but no Roky. A blues belter fills in on vocals. Both recordings are hand held audience and high gen. They have been processed.

Bunny was to shoot Stacy to death later the next year.

   14. Don't Shake Me Lucifer

   15. Red Temple Prayer (Two Headed Dog)

Notes:

   Sure, it's a hodge-podge of stuff but it's a hodge-podge made by a fan and not a puke at some crappy, lo-fi, "label". Some thought was put into this one. Some of this hasn't seen the light yet but most of it was "rescued" off other discs that were compiled by the very lo-fi pukes I mentioned above. Get this, the Aliens live material is actually taken off a shitty "best" of the 13th Floor Elevators disc! The bootlegger put the name of the supergroup on the disc but the whole thing is various Roky solo stuff. Nothing moves in a straight line in the 'Elevator's world. What sucks is that most fans are novice, compared to us, and actually buy the shit spewed out. I bought it because I thought (correctly) that it contained some new Roky stuff.

   The disc leads off with the legendary 1975, Mars Records, Two Headed Dog but this was rescued off a Time-Life "Punk Rock" comp where Doug Sahm let the compilers in with a DAT to copy the multitrack soundboard master. The quality is A+++ and, for this reason alone, makes this disc a MUST.

   Also included is a partial set from a gig dated 9/3/82. This is audience. It was recorded at Trident's in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

   After that is that Aliens live material I mentioned. It's a tragedy that this stuff is kicking around on some lo-fi shit label that tried to screw the public by putting "13th Floor Elevators" on the cover. But we're gonna set that right. This stuff is really great! It's audience but sounds like it's off the master to me. This was recorded at the Whiskey A-Go-Go on July 28th, 1978.

   Filling out the disc is the two Roky & the Explosives tracks off the "Live At Raul's" comp. put out a few years ago. Raul's was THE Punk Rock club in Austin back in the Seventies and the Explosives were the House Band. Alone, they sounded like a poor man's Talking Heads but when they backed Roky they completely fuzzed out the guitars and turned the amps up to "MAX". These two tracks were left off the LP issue back in the Eighties but were added to the CD reissue. The quality is amazing. Soundboard man.

Notes:

   Most of this material has never been on CD. At best it languished on 35-year-old vinyl, unavailable and unknown except to a few hunter/gatherer hoarder/waster scavenger/collector-types.

   So -- the title is: "The High Baptismal Flow a/k/a How Much Is That Vinyl In The Window?" What we have here is two discs of prime 13th Floor Elevators material from a variety of sources. Between this and our previous Elevators discs, this accounts for nearly everything in circulation.

    The heart and soul of CD1 is the Elevators' singles, A's and B's in chronological order. These would have made a fine LP in its own right, had anyone at International Artists had the vision to issue it. (The master tapes are almost certainly lost now.) This would have worked well as a "Best Of," a quick overview of what the band was all about, and a great starting point for new listeners. Nobody ever did, so it falls to us to keep it alive for the real fans and to help take care of Roky as we do.

    Every last 45 is ripped from the original vinyl; decent copies too. For an indie label in TX mostly concerned with making a quick buck, International Artists' 45s sounded pretty good. Even so, it took a couple of software packages and hours of work to get these ready for CD. If you want, you can still hear a hint of vinyl now and then but you'll need headphones to do it. Smooth. Beyond that, we have a pair of alternate mixes, the Spades' pre-Elevators single featuring Roky, and some backing tracks at the end.

   Disc 1:

Tracks 1-19 ripped directly from the original vinyl and processed from there

Track 15 appears on ROKCDR2 "Psychedelic Sounds Alternate Mix" but includes a slight glitch at one point and doesn't feature the false start included here.

Track 16, "Fire Engine" from the "Epitaph For A Legend" LP appears also on ROKCDR2 "Psychedelic Sounds Alternate Mix."  The take is the same, but the mix is not.

   Disc 2:

Tracks 1-6 are ripped from the original vinyl and processed from there.

Tracks 7-20 are rough mixes, raw session tapes. Occasional studio chatter can be heard between tracks.

Track 9 is an alternate mix, notable for its lack of backing vocals.

Track 13 is heard here from a tape playback, rather than the more common acetate source. It seems to have been truncated on purpose; the noise at the end is a reel-to-reel tape coming to a halt. Had the acetate not been found, nothing more would have remained of this song.

Track 20 is a rough mix; no alternate version has ever surfaced.

Notes:

   This is the crash and burn of the final 13th Floor Elevators reunion attempt (with Roky). It's John Ike playing with Evil Hook Wildlife. Ronnie quit because he said he never got paid for the 6/16/84 gig. Long jams are the order of the evening but Roky burns above them. The You're Gonna Miss Me has a long guitar intro thats cool. Then Roky starts screaming. That is cool too. This is 3rd gen audience that has had all the hiss & ugliness scooped out with Soundforge. The second disc is filled out with two radio broadcasts from 1984 at the Austin Opera House.

Then he says that somebody stole his fuzz-box and the shit REALLY hits the fan! You mess with Roky's fuzz-box and you're playing with fire. There's some cool spoken word stuff on this disc as filler.

Notes:

   We have the mono mix of the Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators LP. This is the Mother of all psychedelic music! This is the very first psychedelic LP by the very first psychedelic band. The first modern Rock LP and the blueprint for everything that followed (Psychedelic, Punk, Alternative). Yeah, it all dat peoples, it all dat. It's a legend, a fucking legend! Why is this mono mix special? Well... Back in the day at International Artists, an Engineer, stewed on Listerine probably, added some sort of horrible echo/reverb effect to the final mix of the stereo version. This was a bad mistake; it dated the mix and it sounds like you're listening to the band play from down a concrete hallway underground. This is the mix that has been reissued on CD countless times. The mono LP mix escaped and this is the "real" mix of this legendary and influential LP. With this mix, it's a totally different ball game. The band sounds right upfront and in your face, urgent with fervor. These guys were trying to turn on the whole world. This is one of the foundations of all things 'Elevators. Now, you NEED this CD. This recording was taken off an unplayed mono copy. We broke the seal to rip this. To make matters even worse, we added on the speed-corrected Sump'n Else TV Show tracks from 1966. They're in mono too. It's mono madness! The 'Elevators, live on stage, spewing their subversive message out to the kids over Dallas television; right under the noses of the Establishment because they didn't care to listen to the words. That soon changed.

   "Forget about San Francisco: The American capitol of psychedelic rock was Austin, Texas, and no band soared higher than Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators. In addition to acid-tinged garage rockers such as the crazed-love anthem, "You're Gonna Miss Me," the Elevators' debut included tracks such as "Reverberation (Doubt)," "Roller Coaster," and "Splash 1," which viscerally evoked the sounds of their titles while offering lyrics that provided a philosophical structure for the psychedelic experience." --Jim Derogatis

   13. Bermuda

   14. Red Temple Prayer (Two Headed Dog)

   15. Night Of The Vampire

Notes:

   The Aliens live in Berkeley, 1977. It's a soundboard. Roky's Manager used to hand these cassettes out for promotional purposes. This has been bootlegged numerous times. You might remember the title You Will Believe In Ghosts. Well... This is taken direct off one of those tapes that was handed out back in the day. It's not a 4th gen copy. What's more, the signal was processed. It sounds better than anything out there. There are a very few, slight, tape dropouts but this tape IS old. It's very slight and only in a few places. The bottom line is that this is the best sounding recording of the Aliens live extant. Is it Punk? Is it Metal? Is it Punk/Metal? You be the judge.

   I got this Roky show from the manager of the Nervebreakers about 1977. . . It is a soundboard recording. . . Sounds like the Blieb Aliens. Two guitar players, organ and electric jug. Two sets. The recording quality is excellent with a little tape hiss. . . The mix starts off funky and it gets better during The Wind And More as the person at the mixing board adjusts the levels. It was recorded onto an old TDK Super Avilyn cassette.

   Based on the song selection and the sequencing of the songs these recordings are almost surely the same as those which appeared on the bootleg LPs "Weird Tales" and "New Tales Of The Weird", in a slightly rearranged order. "New Tales Of The Weird" is The Aliens at Berkeley, 1977; the live portion of "Weird Tales" is probably the same. These LPs have only decent to poor sound quality however. "I Know How To Love You" is "I Love How You Love Me" (a 50's song), and "The Necronomicon Song" appears in truncated form on the CD/LP/Cass Gremlins Have Pictures as "Before In The Beginning".

   18. She Lives (In A Time Of Her Own)

8/66 La Maison Ballroom, Houston, Texas

   19. I Feel Good

Notes:

   This was the single attempt by IA to professionally record their band in a live setting. They picked this theater in Houston with a revolving stage. I've owned this recording for years now and held off on it because I'm not too fond of the performance. Supposedly, they were all over-dosed on LSD. Stacy was up in Heaven being tried for his sins by the Angel of Death. He said that he knew things were getting hairy when the whole audience turned into wolves. He also said that he didn't feel *normal* for a week afterwards. This is all in that interview. This is the gig. So, the gig has a weird feel. But that's only my opinion... Still, it is (by far) the best sounding 'Elevators live recording out there.

   This copy is from a Japanese issue of the Contemptables box. This recording isn't chopped up and has complete tunings between songs. There are even moments of silence and we were able to grab some really good hiss samples. It sounds amazing! In addition, we have the 3/16/66 bit ripped direct from a vinyl boot. There's no DJ patter between songs and one song is missing but the quality blows away what came before on 6/16/84.

   17. Honky Tonk Women

Notes:

   This band consists of Stacy Sutherland (guitar), Ronnie Leatherman (bass), Obi Hardeman (vocals), Bobby Rector (drums) and Cecil Morris (harp). The music is rock, blues, soul, but some of the names involved may be of interest to fans of Texas Psych. The original recording is courtesy of George Kinney of The Golden Dawn, who has cleared its distribution. There is hardly any audience noise between tracks, so it's TAO and fits only on an 80 minute CDR. There are cover versions by the Band, Stones and Dylan (plus whoever wrote 'Money' - Barrett Strong IIRC), as well as blues standards and band compositions. No compositions by The Elevators. Sound quality is a fairly consistent 8/10 with very occasional clipping.

Notes:

   An AMAZING recording! I think Roky is reading out of his book, Openers and putting music to the poems/songs. It's all religious stuff and really gorgeous. "Jesus is not a hallucinogenic mushroom..." you gotta love that man. Some of these songs HAVE NEVER been heard and only known in lyrical form (until now). This is a real find.

   The quality is a master tape clone that has been tweaked with Cool Edit Pro. The mic is right up there on the stage with Roky and he even bumps it a few times. The quality is gorgeous.

Notes:

   This was originally #'s 5A & 5B of the Roky CD Club. It has had two names: Demos For Demons & Best Laid Plans. Since this came out, much better quality of some recordings was found. Additionally, the original recordings were tweaked with Soundforge by somebody much more skilled in it. The result is a much better sounding recording all around.

   10. Red Temple Prayer (Two Headed Dog)

       [with Brian Curley (bass) of Evil Hook Wildlife E.T.]

Notes:

   This is an A- (or a critical B+) audience recording, transferred from the master tape, of Roky Erickson backed by a group called Cornerstone from a show at the Continental Club in Austin, TX on May 21, 1984.  Supposedly Roky played with Cornerstone for a very short time, less than a year, and this is the first recording of this lineup to be offered through the Roky CD club.

   The second version of 'Two Headed Dog' features a guest appearance by Brian Curley of Evil Hook Wildlife E.T. fame.  Regretfully, his bass is mixed way too much up front, but the mix on the rest of the recording is fine.  The band is tight (if  IMO the lead guitar is a bit over the top at times) and Roky sings with conviction.

In a nod to the original format, a silent track has been added between programs. Of the original 8-track mixes, most were sped up 1% or 2%. We've restored them to their original pitches. "Live" is notable for a true-stereo mix of "Before You Accuse Me". Cassettes, 8-tracks and reels (unlike LPs) are several generations nearer to the master mixdown, and these mixes reflect that as well. "Easter Everywhere" was assembled from two different copies, one of which self-destructed upon playback.
