FYI this is not mastered from the original tapes but an original Hookah vinyl and didn't sound too hot compared to the Bob Irwin/Sundazed CD which is from the tapes. Had a lot of high end noise I thought was a bad pressing and returned it but found out it was a needledrop through emails and my record store guy. The people at Numero were very understanding about it and I don't think they are using the glue-on front OBI which leaves marks on the cover anymore (ouch!) A wonderful record though. Heavy as only a Texas band on hard drugs and massive doses of psychedelics circa 1970 could be. "Dead Man" features the long-scope philosophical look at the world through Echoplex eyes and Doug Tull is a man possessed on drums. A masterpiece, in short...even songs like "Country Boy" reek of tumbleweeds and Texas dust. Seek out Stone Axe, who had a post Josefus single with a new guitarist from 1971, and Josefus's econd Mainstream album if you liked this, however as far as Dead Man goes stick with the Sundazed as far as reissues go (haven't heard the other vinyl issues other than this)
