2004 UK version of the classic 3rd album, originally issued in 1969. "Classic final studio album now featuring 10 bonus tracks. Generally recognized as being one of the pioneer psychedelic groups of the '60s, The 13th Floor Elevators released four seminal albums on the highly-regarded Texan label, International Artists between 1966 and 1969. Leader Roky Erickson's involvement in the recording sessions for Bull of the Woods, the group's final studio album, was somewhat curtailed owing to his being sidelined by his increasing drug and legal problems. The group's guitarist Stacy Sutherland however, proved more than an able deputy for Roky and wrote most of the songs. The resulting album remains as another memorable slice of psychedelia. Roky's two contributions, the reverb-drenched 'May The Circle Remain Unbroken' and 'Never Another' along with 'Doctor Doom' are album highlights. This re-issue includes 10 bonus tracks. These include four outtakes from the Bull of the Woods sessions and includes a sublime acoustic reading of 'Splash 1,' one of the standout tracks from the group's debut album. The five 'live' titles are taken from the group's Live album, and are in fact studio recordings with overdubbed audience effects. As with last year's enhanced reissue of the group's other classic album, Easter Everywhere, the attractive digipak packaging faithfully reproduces the original artwork and includes an illustrated booklet with detailed sleeve notes."
