This is a FIVE STAR classic psych-rock record and one of the cornerstones of my collection. Why the ONE STAR rating then you ask? As a warning against buying this record in the condition that it is currently being sold in. Mine was factory sealed and there are still ticks and pops when played as, unfortunately, was the case with many of the International Artist LPs. Take a close look at the BTS Frisbees on offer here and not cheap as the crow flies. Do you have any idea of how abysmal they would sound and the worse the better your audio system.

It seems to be common sense that US originals do not sound great. This is not true. The problem is that the stampers used degenerated quickly and that this record was played with bad needles back in their time. You need a really early pressing that has not been played very much (obviously these do not turn up any more). Very early copies can be identified by the printing error on the back listing 'Postures' as 'Posturos'.
I own one of these in nm condition and it sounds great. Before I got it, I had several copies of slightly later pressings that were more or less heavily played and they really sounded bad. Sad but true: In this case, a true absolutely first press mint copy is the only way to hear one of the best psych records in all its glory.

So I recently bought what I believed to be an original stereo copy but now that I've had time to look it over, I'm 99% convinced it's a boot. The sleeve is not a thick tip-on sleeve that I would think a release of this era would have, but is a thinner printed cardboard sleeve. As well with the inner sleeve, it's just a plain inner with no lyrics (I read in the goldmine record book that some real copies didn't come with the inner, but still). The record itself is also thinner than other records of the same year and easily flexes. The labels and runouts all match the official IA issue however, and there are no differences on the sleeve other than it just being made of thin material. All text matches with no misspellings and no overly glossy look (I wouldn't say it's matte, but it's not glossy). Can someone help me confirm if this really is a boot?

The 13th Floor Elevators were a bit before my time, but I probably discovered their stuff maybe 10 years or so after they were done and gone. They have several quite haunting songs, and the opening track of this album (Slip Inside This House) was probably the one that sucked me right in to their sound. Also of note on this release is "I've Got Levitation". Roky Erickson has a unique voice and stylings that I still enjoy on his solo work to this day (even though I've yet to hear his latest). Tommy Hall's electric jug sounds are strange and unique and it was actually a few years before I even found out what that sound was on their recordings. I don't think there was any American band quite as unique as 13th Floor Elevators, and while their work (and Erickson's solo work) have what is probably a "cult" following, their work is sadly overlooked by most.
