13th Floor Elevators - Attack of the 8 tracks

 Click in the pics for more info.
Also read the setlist.
A very complete archive.
 *
AaaRrr she´s a beauty ! 
*
"These recordings languished in collectors circles for almost 40 years, never even played, it took the Roky cd club to free them for those who VALUE THE *THING*, the object, the music, for the first time ever, true sanity prevails on the 8-track mix of the mighty PSYCHEDELIC SOUNDS appears here (changed for cd)"...ouh yes brothers, enjoy.

*******
This one goes to:
Several Anonymous guys, Jr, Its just me, Joey, Pablo, F, Mark, Dr Funkestein, Marabunta, Pep Sonic, Stupiddle, Elmer Dinkley, Henry, JBFrance, Mp, T T-Rex, Pamela, Ge (always loved your profile pics!keep them up!), Al, Romi, Matt H, Viacomclosedmedown on youtub, Roadrunner...
& to all of those who visit´n´drop comments on the Garage blog.
******
One of the guys said that I was looking for comments saying thanks and to grow my ego-soul, or bothering the visitors to cheer me or something, 
the point Im trying to make here, its that if I took 20 minutes to prepare the post and another hour or 2 depending the upload sites to put the music, im just asking 1, 2 or maximum 3 minutes to drop a comment about the band/music/stuff im posting, thats all,

I wanna know if you do love Roky and the 13th, or the post of the day, if you have the stuff already, what do you want, ( for example: like JBFrance asking for other stuff too), dropping opinions, info, anything you want, thats the most interesting thing to me, reading your comments and opinion. Its not nice (believe me) posting stuff & no getting anything exchange, 

your comments are my monthly & only salary-wage on the blogger-sphere!
 
the Bomber only wants ------> Feedback (with the audience)

Thats all folks!
Thanks for your time,  much appreciated.
Hope we get the same quantity of comments in every post.
=)

 I  love sharing music with you.
Pablo

ojo no es mala onda lo que escribo pero es una realidad . esto lo escribe un compañero tuyo del blog y lo comparto mucho con el , me cae muy bien el tipo por sus ideas de compartir musica sin pedir nada a cambio solo por amor al arte y puro orgullo demostarr lo que escucha : Y Wirtis, siempre pispeando sus blogs preferidos para ver qué puede robar y traer, por supuesto; para compartir con los vagos del garage, con los cófrades rockeros. este disco que tengo el placer de publicarles . No obstante, para que la soledad no duela, les dejé un genial y rabioso single en wordpress y, por si fuera poco; el disco que nos mandó el hermano Wilmer. Bueno, para ustedes, para que, mientras lo escuchen; recen una plegaria por el bienestar de Wirtis . y esto lo rescate solamente de los primeros 5 post que lei , es un grosso el chabon y a esto lo digo por que lo siento no por que me lo pida y creo que entonces lo que digo tiene mas valor

creo yo o me censuraste igual no me interesa solo quiero que lo leas vos no es que te quiera desenmascarar ni nada por el estilo igualmente yo seguire bajando musica de aqui cuando LOS PIBES TE CONFORMEN CON COMENTARIOS ELOGIANTES E HIPOCRITAS y cuando crea que sea necesario te agradecere y ese agradecimiento como el de un tiempo atras tendra verdadero valor para levantar tu ego ( ego logico ) saludos

Anonymous said...

A lot work went into these.

Cant wait to hear it.

F said...

How many times have I listened to those songs over the years? Yet the box set disclosed details I never realized even existed. I wonder if it's really possible to disclose further secrets.

The Bomber said...

Viejo, mas que todo borro las estupideces que pones, porque ocupan lugar. Sinceramente no entiendo nada de lo que hablas, ni de Wirtis ni Wilmer ni los pibes, no estas entendiento a lo que quiero llegar, no quiero agradecimientos ni nada que me levante el ego (para eso tengo a mi perro), solo pido que se colabore con info, aportes, datos, lo que se tenga que decir que sume, preferencias, etc etc. NO QUIERO UN GRACIAS, ni nada por el estilo, solo saber que hay interes en lo que uno postea, solo eso.
No pido nada a cambio, no soy dueño de la musica, si se que gaste $$$ para poder adquirir ciertas antiguedades que considero invaluables y aca estoy compartiendolas con todos, no hables mucho si no sabes.

Abrazos

Pablo

I can't believe how rich the 13th Floor Elevators legacy continues to be. It's a real testament not only to the men (read: boys) who made made this music back in the day, but also to the fans who have kept the interest alive and done these recordings the justice they deserve.

Please make these recordings available. Can't wait to hear them.

Mark said...

Oye amigo,esto tiene muy buena pinta...

Verysixty said...

i'm really interested by these recordings,
please share them to everybody !

Dr. Funkenstein said...

joder, bomber, tienen una pinta estupenda. Ansiosos esperaremos la subida de esta maravilla desconocida por todos.

Ah, y como consejo, a los chorras esos que no saben ni escribir y que nada más critican no hay que hacerles ni caso, trolls como él los hay en todos los blogs y son una especie de internet a exterminar. Es mejor no hacerles caso y ellos solos se largan.

Muchas gracias!

mar-abunta said...

Maravilla!, gracias Pablo ;)

Ah pues no!, iba yo a robartelo, pero no hay enlace...
Qué mala suerte tengo, nunca llego a tiempo.

Pep Sonic said...

Hola Pablo, veo que sigue habiendo gente que se aburre en casa y no tiene otra cosa mejor que hacer que decir chorradas; y lo peor de todo es que se pensará que le interesan a alguién. En fin, cuanto patán indocumentado hay suelto querido amigo,

Cuidate mucho,

pablo said...

hola bomber me llamo pablo y fui el estupido que comento anteriormente . se que a veces es tarde para pedir disculpas pero es mejor reconocer cuando uno se equivoca y yo me equivoque no tanto en lo que escribi sino en la manera que lo dije . como lo dije en el blog de wirtis parecia como un SIN COMENTARIOS NO HAY LINK yo puedo llegar a imaginarme el trabajo y tiempo que te lleva esto como tambien se la pasion que te y nos genera , quizas esta pasion me genero actuar como un gran boludo ( puede que lo sea )o un chorra que no se que significa pero tambien lo debo ser . pues solo eso pedirte disculpas sin esperar a que me las aceptes pero pedirtelas y tambien sentidamente , es que vuelvo a leer lo que escribi y me sigo sintiendo un pelotudo ¿ censura ? jajaja . no se que mas poner solamente disculpas publicas a un tio que me hizo crecer en conocimientos sobre lo que es el rock garage en su momento te lo hice saber y lo seguire diciendo . y decir que wirtis me ayudo a entrar en razon sobre esto de ser un blogger
saludos

stupiddle said...

What ... ?!? Are you psychic? I was just at http://www.texaspsychedelicrock.com/ a few days ago reading about the fan club CD releases and trying to find any at the blogs. This may be a first. Either way please keep them coming if any others are/become available. Assuming the comment count continues to rise. And you're so inclined. Muchogliged! ~stu

Pablo (the bomber-cazorla) es de las personas mas gentiles que he encontrado en la web, sinceramente no te mereces esto viejo, tambien veo que la persona se arrepintio, pero que bien eso.

Viacomclosedmedown on youtube said...

Roky Erickson is probably the most unifying performer in the whole garage scene and is important to show that us consumers DO AGREE what good music is to be. I know you wont let us down Bomber, you're our only hope.

What kind of attention-seeking dickwad makes people BEG for an upload!?!? You go take your very special collection and SHOVE IT UP YOUR ARSE mate!

Traduccion del post al español:

Uno de ellos dijo que yo estaba buscando comentarios diciendo gracias y hacer crecer mi ego-alma, o molestar a los visitantes para alentarme o algo así,
el punto que estoy tratando de hacer aquí, su que si me tomó 20 minutos para preparar el puesto y otra hora o dos, dependiendo de los sitios de carga para poner la música, soy sólo pidiendo 1, 2 o máximo 3 minutos para dejar un comentario acerca de la banda / música / cosas que anuncio, eso es todo,

Quiero saber si usted gusta Roky y 13, o el post del día, si usted tiene las cosas ya, ¿qué quieres, (por ejemplo: JBFrance como pedir otras cosas también), cayendo opiniones, información, cualquier cosa que desea, eso es lo más interesante para mí, leer sus comentarios y opinión. No es agradable (creo yo) subiendo cosas y no hay intercambio conseguir nada,

sus comentarios son mi salario en la esfera blogger!

el Bombardero sólo quiere ------> feedback (con el público)

The Bomber said...

Hahaha, remember im psychic, took the shape of Stacey, and there you have ! ! !

Elmer Dinkley said...

Hey
Entiendo lo que dices. En ingles, se llama un labour of love (trabajo de amor). Pero, los links - son virus o que?

Thanks Pablo for this awesome stuff!
Amazing to hear Roky and the Elevators at their best.
The new Roky CD is also terrific and is the real start of his second life, the man still is genius.

ge said...

I'm an 'Easter' & 'Bull' fan more than the first---and those gaddamn audience whistles & cheers i need never hear again---so after some pruning I got a great new-old CD-album to suss sonorities never sensed. Gracias to all concerned. [The solid drummer danny thomas is a great treat to concentrate on---ie that delayed-flam figure he uses on 'Livin' On'...+++]

Hola Bomber, una vez mas 1.000.000 de gracias por tus posts, este de los Elevators es especialmente guapo.

Otra vez gracias, la música es de las pocas cosas que me transmiten algo bueno (familia a parte) y me dan vida.

Greatly looking forward to hearing these.

Has anyone ever found the lyrics to "'Til Then"? I've been obsessed with this song since forever, and would like one day to record a tribute version. But I've never been able to make out all the words.

Guidance would be appreciated. Meanwhile, many thanks, Pablo!

Thanks very much for posting these - they are a thing of beauty! Love the clarity of the instruments. Much less 'mushed together' than I'm used to. Lol, sorry I don't know how to put it better.

Thank you for this post.
I was lucky enough to see Roky play in LA about a month ago. As usual he was great. Now if only I could get my hands on a time machine and go back to 1966 to see the Elevators in all their glory!

Dr. Funkenstein said...

Hola Bomber.

Estaba poniendo las ID3 a los archivos y me estaba costando un ratillo, pues no me coincidian las tracs con las de las portadas jejeje.
Así que, buscando, me he encontrado esto
http://groups.google.com/group/Texas-P/web/roky-cd-club-discography?pli=1

que es la lista del Roky CD Club Discography. Comparando con esto (el Attack es el num. 38), faltan las primeras 9 pistas, que corresponeden a las nueve primeras canciones del psychedelic sounds of...

Mi duda es si dispones de esas canciones (y del artwork que le correspondería al primer volumen, que me acabo de dar cuenta que está incompleto), o simplemente se te ha olvidado al ponerlas, o si no donde se pueden conseguir xDD

Un saludo y muchas gracias otra vez!

Dr. Funkenstein said...

Vale, un fallo. Ya he encontrado esas pistas al final del resto (con la numeración y eso se habían desordenado xDD)

De todas maneras muchas gracias!

The Bomber said...

Doc, si las pistas no estaban en el orden correcto, me alegro que esta solucionado =)

Dr. Funkenstein said...

Si, no pasa nada.

Por cierto, buscando antes me he encontrado todos los discos del Roky Ericson CD Club en un único torrent y en FLAC.
Preparad espacio en el disco duro, pues son 25 gigas ;)
