13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS – Fire in My Bones / Elevator Tracks

 

 

These two unofficial vinyl collections issued in ’85/’87 on Texas Archive rec. were the first sources for unissued early recordings by Roky and crew. Both records have one studio side with early 1966 recordings [later known as ”The Contact Sessions”] and the other live side from ‘The Sump N’ Else Tv Show’ and ‘La Maison Ballroom’. You can hear great unissued stuff as ”I Don’t Ever Want To Come Down”, ”Make That Girl Your Own”, ”You Can’t Hurt Me Anymore”, ‘Fire In My Bones”, alternate versions of tunes from their legendary debut, live rumble and Intereview with Tommy Hal by Ron Chapman [“Who is it that is doing the ‘doo ga doo ga doo’ Is that you?”]. I know you know but… once again the 13th Floor Elevators!!!

[Special thanx to JPstooges for vinyl rip]

THE KINKS vs THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS vs KENNY AND THE KASUALS

Cool Intro riff for COME ON NOW, B-side of classic Kinks ’65 single Tired of… is a point of collision between these 60’s garage legends. 
As you know, borrow & steal is a common practice in Rock’n’Roll history, so this is a luscious example of how “the same” instro theme can be used in three different tunes with terrific results. 
KENNY AND THE KASUALS used it for their classic ’66 garage nugget Journey To Tyme, THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS psychedelizied it in great Tried to Hide. Come on now, Check it out!

THE 13th FLOOR ELEVATORS – The Psychedelic Sounds Of [Stereo] Vinyl Rip!!!

13th floor1

GROOVIE Surfadelic Vinyl Rip of this Texas 60’s garage/psych ultra-classic, from ’78 reissue on UK Radarscope Records. As you know there are tons of reissues out there but I thought it would be pretty interesting to hear this one, especially for Elevators fans. The sound on this version is ballsy raw ‘n’ louder than on CD reissues, so you better wach out! The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Within You… Dig!!!
