Limited to a Maximum of Only 3,000 Sets

Snapper Music proudly presents a definitive, strictly limited vinyl tribute to the 13th Floor Elevators with the 8LP Box Set entitled Music Of the Spheres. The box set includes 3 x gatefold double and 2 x single vinyl albums all pressed on heavy-weight vinyl and boasting the best sound quality ever for these Elevators' releases!

Also included is a 36-page new edition of Paul Drummond's book Sign of the Three Eyed Men in a 12" format; three exclusive 3D lenticular prints of the key album's artworks; and a 10" EP containing the rare Bob Sullivan mixes from The Psychedelic Sounds of.

The entire set is housed in a strong 13" square hard box, featuring a unique 3D lenticular cover image of the iconic Zebra man artwork which was used on a poster advertising the band’s performance at the Avalon Ballroom and is only limited to a maximum of 3,000 sets!

Unique Features of Music of the Spheres:

- The first releases on vinyl of two albums Headstone, the band’s planned first album which was never released at the time and Live in California: The Avalon Recordings. These vinyl albums will only be available in this package.

- The first official vinyl release of A Love That’s Sound, the group’s lost third album, now featuring a recently discovered and never previously heard track "Some Day, My Love," which was originally intended as the 6th single.

- Three stunning 8" (200cm) 3D lenticular prints of the album artwork for The Psychedelic Sounds of, Bull of the Woods and Easter Everywhere.

- The Sumet Sounds Masters EP, a six track 10" EP of Bob Sullivan’s original stereo ‘desk mixes’ of 5 tracks from The Psychedelic Sounds of recordings plus the highly desirable early version of the band’s second single "Reverberation" from an acetate, only previously available on the long sold out Sign of the 3 Eyed Men CD box set. This disc will only be available in this package.
