13th Floor Elevators: Live At The Avalon Ballroom (US, 1966)

Out of order...
Shure...you do remember the Kinks cover here.

They played at the Avalon ballroom four times and once at the Fillmore West. Their first album was released during their stay in California and this, plus the fact they gigged a lot at the Avalon Ballroom, led many people to believe them to be a San Francisco band. In fact, they actually put on an all-Texan show at the Avalon during their California stay with Big Brother and The Holding Company (Janis Joplin was from Austin, Texas and at one time nearly joined The 13th Floor Elevators) and the Sir Douglas Quintet. The band's time in California helped to forge important links between America's West Coast and the hitherto relatively isolated Texas psychedelic scene. The Elevators would return to California two more times in late 1967 and in 1968.

The Elevators here might have been a bit of a shock to the San Francisco audience...
about live performances and California...what about BUFFALO SPRINGFIELD?
There's quite a lot of live stuff by them around, some in not very good quality...one of those bands that you really had to be there to fully appreciate them according to those who saw them live.

Muito ácido presente nesta apresentação alucinante de grandes covers! Constando somente um ou outro tema de autoria deles...
O que mais me impressionou é o backing vocal proferindo ruidinhos ao longo de todos os temas! Na verdade, fiquei na dúvida se é voz ou algum instrumentinho...

Muito bacana!
Obrigado por mais esse, Pablo!!

Una vez mas me salvaste de lidiar con un usuario de Soulseek con tasa de transferencia entre 0.1 y 1.2
Y encima en el ultimo tema de la bajada (Monkey island) se raja.
¡¡ Se rajó en el 97% !!!!

Gracias, Bomber. Siempre idolo.
