There's so many interesting things about this sucker. Recorded live at the New Orleans Old World night club in Austin in 1966. It was, at the time, to be the final show of the 13th Floor Elevators (obviously the photo above was much earlier). The first thing that grabs you is that the on-air host is a total square. Comically so. Get used to him, he chimes in quite regularly. But not quite as unrelentingly as the designated hooter, who gets pretty annoying. It becomes a little less annoying when you imagine this guy as someone who has given up any hope of getting laid. This is a guy who came to the show with a couple of his buddies, the three of them passing a bottle of Jack in the parking lot. They came to rock and roll, and hoot. Fuck yeah! He's okay now.
The 13th Floor Elevators. You get five songs. Two are Beatles covers ("The Word" and "I'm Down") and one is Them's "Gloria". When they finally play "You're Gonna Miss Me", it cuts off to go the next show "Jazz Dixieland Style". The on-air host is the shit on that show.
