13th Floor Elevators-Street Song

This is from Bull of the Woods, the Elevators 3rd studio album. This record is kind of a mess, some of it works in spite of itself. Here’s a gem from it.

Roky Erickson-The Singing Grandfather

From what I’ve read this is from a collection of songs that were recorded at a Holiday Inn on a cheap tape recorder, just Roky and an acoustic guitar. I have it on a cd called Click Your Fingers Applauding the Play, I’ve also seen it on The Holiday Inn Tapes

Golden Dawn-Starvation
This Austin band were contemporaries of The 13th Floor Elevators. This is from their only album Power Plant (International Artists 1968). It was recorded before Easter Everywhere but released after it. The album is solid and sounds like a folkier version of the Elevators
