Roky Erickson And The 13th Floor Elevators 1966-1991 Unreleased Masters Collection

Massive 3 disc set with tracks from the 1960's (previously unreleased
alternate takes from 1966-1967) Plus a lot of solo Roky Erickson
material sprinkled into the mix from 1976, 1984 and 1991.(and this is cool too)
Disc one is dominated by material from 1966-1967 with wonderful
unreleased alternate mixes. Disc two is a unreleased master mix of 1967
live at La Maison in Houston,Texas. Disc three is previously unreleased
Roky Erickson,versions of songs by Bob Dylan,
and Donovan Leitch ,which was recorded in 1984.
Really, worth several listens!
Great to hear the history of Roky through the years...
