13th Floor Elevators at the Liberty Lunch in Austin, June 16th, 1984, about 123 minutes, and The 13th Floor Elevators live at The New Orleans Club as broadcasted by KAZZ-FM on March 16th, 1966, 30 minutes.
The 1984 show is taken from a first generation high bias cassette of the original beta cam recording. This is the complete show, and the sound is MUCH better then the two previously released pieces (Collectables 'Last Concert' and 'Live In Texas' - side 2). The show is total high energy, Roky is in great voice, the band kicks ass, and the crowd of over 1000 Elevators/Roky fans is loving it.
Roky Erickson: vocals, guitar
Greg "Catfish" Forrest, guitar
Ronnie Leatherman, bass
John Ike Walton, drums
The 13th Floor Elevators on KAZZ-FM is from a tape of unknown generation. This is the complete 30-minute radio show in original order with lots of historically interesting announcer comments, and I believe it is rather rare in this uncut form. The recording methods were obviously primitive, but the band with its original line-up are at their peak, 'Roller Coaster' and 'Gloria' are fantastic. "After you trip life opens up" - on the Texas air waves in early 1966!
Roky Erickson: vocals, rhythm guitar
Stacy Sutherland: lead guitar
Tommy Hall: amplified jug
