July 31, 2015 Record of the Day

13th-Floor-ElevatorsThe 13th Floor Elevators never really had any hits but the Texas band that formed in the mid 60s still has a following today. Psychedelic music was what they lived for but drugs were their downfall. Member Rory Erickson was charged with marijuana possession in 1969, followed by three years at the Rusk Hospital for the criminally insane. Their most valuable album was released by International Artists in 1967. An original mono copy of “Easter Everywhere” is worth up to $2,500.00 today. FOR BIG SAVINGS ON OUR RECORD GUIDES, CLICK ON “MIGHTY JOHN’S DISCOUNT PACKAGES” IN THE YELLOW STRIP ABOVE.
