Record Store Day 2017 Release. Originally issued in 1990, this tribute album to the founder of the 13th Floor Elevators is a favorite of record stores and fans who wish to own Erickson's definition of psychedelic music. Includes Doug Sahm, ZZ Top, the Butthole Surfers, T-Bone Burnett and a host of other great artists. It's a loving tribute to Roky, a man who influenced so many of his peers and became a hero to a whole new generation of musicians. Conceived by Sire Records president and long time fan Bill Bentley, the record was created as a means to widen Roky's audience and aid in the financial woes he experienced later in life. Double vinyl remaster housed in a gatefold sleeve, includes three extra tracks previously only available on the original cassette release.
