Roky Erickson - More power to you (1983/84)

An AMAZING recording! I think Roky is reading out of his book, Openers and putting music to the poems/songs. It's all religious stuff and really gorgeous. "Jesus is not a hallucinogenic mushroom..." you gotta love that man. Some of these songs HAVE NEVER been heard and only known in lyrical form (until now). This is a real find.
I think you Syd Barrett folks will want this. You'll know what I mean when you hear it. It's like a "Barrett" session only with religious lyrics but they're lyrics that Roky wrote. It's NOT "Church" music. This is a REAL find and addition to the Roky Catalog. I'm telling you, this is the REAL DEAL.
The quality is a master tape clone that has been tweaked with Cool Edit Pro. The mic is right up there on the stage with Roky and he even bumps it a few times. The quality is gorgeous.
