13th Floor Elevators The Complete Elevators IA Singles Collection on Limited Edition 8 x 7" Vinyl Box Set

For the first time the genuine 45rpm mono mixes of the 13th Floor Elevators’ seven singles plus the rare 1965 pre-Elevators Spades 45 - recorded for International Artists Records between 1966 and 1968 - are compiled together in one vinyl box set. Following on from the extraordinary success of the band’s recent Music of the Spheres box set which has uplifted their reputation and commercial appeal this set is the definitive singles introduction to the very best of the Elevators. Mastered from the best available original copies, with repro labels and jukebox-style large center holes, housed in superb glossy box with fold-out insert.

Exploring the outer limits of both music and the mind, it is alleged that 13th Floor Elevators band members were under the influence of LSD for every rehearsal, performance, and recording session. This was directly reflected on the 13th Floor Elevator's distinct and influential sound which was shaped by the unearthly banshee howl of Roky Erickson, the blistering guitar of Stacy Sutherland and the demented electric jug of Tommy Hall. The Complete Elevators IA Singles Collection captures the band's lightning in a bottle fertile years before drug abuse, mental health problems and run-ins with the law led to their premature demise.

"The fearless trailblazers of psychedelia and one of the most kick-ass rock bands ever...For two or so years they burned with a flame so fierce that 40 years on they still remain an inspiration." - MOJO
