Live Evolution Lost: The 13th Floor Elevators Live at the Houston Music Theatre is the first ever release of the complete performance of the band's legendary show from 18th February 1967. This is a 3LP coloured vinyl box set edition.
The trailblazing 13th Floor Elevators released the first "psychedelic" rock album in America, transforming culture throughout the 1960s and beyond. Formed in late 1965 in a small town in Texas by Electric Jug playing Tommy Hall, guitarist & vocalist Roky Erickson, guitarist Stacy Sutherland they were joined by bass player Benny Thurman, and drummer John Ike Walton.
A three album edition, on green, blue and red heavyweight vinyl, which for the first time features the whole of the Elevators' historic gig on 18th February 1967 at the Houston Music Theatre. It catches the band with its classic line-up before the release of 'Easter Everywhere' and is the only known complete recording of an Elevators' gig, and the latest to survive. Mastered by Sonic Boom and put together by band expert Paul Drummond, it includes one reel unissued for over forty-five years.
