13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS

BULL OF THE WOODS
(DOUBLE HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL / 2CD DIGIBOOK)

13th Floor Elevators
A double heavyweight vinyl edition of the Elevators’ 1968 album plus the ‘lost’ 3rd album ‘A Love That’s Sound’

This is the first release on vinyl for ‘A Love That’s Sound’ and it contains a recently discovered and never-heard before version of Some Day My Love, the song originally scheduled as the band’s 6th single

‘Their masterpiece. Easter Everywhere is an all-time higher key document. With a measured Erickson vocal and a blissful Sutherland solo, ‘Slip Inside This House’ is eight minutes of constant build: the guide for a new enlightenment. The rest isn’t bad either...’ MOJO

Previously only available as part of the ‘Music Of The Spheres’ box set, Bull of The Woods is the first vinyl reissue from tape sources of the stereo edition for over three decades.

‘this album more than holds up against its predecessors: Sutherland’s lovelorn songs inhabiting a bluesier cosmic sound reminiscent of The Grateful Dead, Moby Grape or Blue Cheer – for whom the Elevators were an undeniable inspiration.’ UNCUT

The set also includes five unreleased mixes which are the producer/engineer Bob Sullivan’s original stereo studio mixes.
