A mid-price deluxe double CD containing two classic Post-Psychedelic statements from the 13th Floor Elevators, the band’s fourth album Bull Of The Woods and the ‘lost’ third album A Love That's Sound.
 
Including the mono mix of A Love That's Sound, plus remastered stereo audio from 2007, the set is presented in a brilliant jewel case with a detailed 16-page booklet.
 
-------
 
During a turbulent time for the Elevators, caused by drug issues and incarceration for vocalist Roky Erickson, lead guitarist Stacy Sutherland ran the recordings for these two albums, featuring a frequently-changing lineup. The result is this fine post-psychedelic rock album in Bull of the Woods, which features on Disc 2. The first disc is dedicated to the lost 'third' album; A Love That's Sound features alternate recordings taken from the original acetate, 2-track master and multi-track masters. Audio restoration and final mastering to disc was handled by Andrew Thompson at Sound Performance in 2008. 
 
"The fearless trailblazers of psychedelia and one of the most kick-ass rock bands ever... For two or so years they burned with a flame so fierce that 40 years on they still remain an inspiration." - MOJO
 
"This album more than holds up against its predecessors: Sutherland’s lovelorn songs inhabiting a bluesier cosmic sound reminiscent of The Grateful Dead, Moby Grape or Blue Cheer – for whom the Elevators were an undeniable inspiration." - Uncut
