The only 13th Floor Elevators LP to make the Billboard chart captures the group at their absolute peak. Released in November 1967, a year after their debut LP Psychedelic Sounds, the band, critics and fans alike consider Easter Everywhere to be the Elevator's finest work. Produced by Lelan Rogers, the music is delivered with an informed power and intensity of knowing. Even the quieter tracks, Dust and Had To Tell You display a restrained beauty and purity of vision which perfectly counterbalance the intensity of Earthquake and Slip Inside This House. Genre-defining, pioneering, unique and utterly timeless, The 13th Floor Elevators continue to influence and inspire new generations of musicians. R.E.M, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Primal Scream, ZZ Top, Spacemen 3, Echo and the Bunnymen, Julian Cope and many more have covered their songs.
Now on deluxe 2CD. Disc 1 is the rare mono version of the album remastered from the original vinyl - surviving International Artists suggests that as few as 120 mono stock copies were sold to order.

Disc 2 is the original stereo mix, remastered in 2009 from the 2-track master by Paul Drummond and Andrew Thompson from Sound Performance. The second disc also features bonus rare recording session ou ake “Fire in My Bones”, which was remastered in 2007 by Walt Andrus.
