The 13th Floor Elevators - Paradise Found

Le 25 octobre, à Austin, Texas, disparaissait Walt Andrus, coupable d'avoir été l'ingénieur du son du 13th Floor Elevators pour International Artists, et coupable aussi d'avoir enregistré Lost & Found, Golden Dawn, Red Crayola... Il avait également participé activement à l'élaboration du coffret Sign of the 3 Eyed Men... Alors, Walt... Paradise Found ?

Walt Andrus was head of the best studio in Houston, and in that particular period, he recorded everybody. Euphoria, who were definitely West Coast psychedelic progenitors of surf music, South Bay surf music, incredible guitar playing, power trio, the bass player out of the band that made "Pipeline" or "Wipe Out" or one of those kind of things, and a great drummer and a good guitar player. What you saw with Hendrix - the same principle, taken to its highest expression. Walt recorded this album. (Mayo Thompson - Red Crayola)

Ouip, intéressant pour tous les fans du 13th Floor, avec des versions originales de pas mal de titres, souvent plus "sèches" (là, je suis en train d'écouter la version de Roller Coaster, jouée à 100 à l'heure et avec une agressivité qu'on ne retrouve pas dans l'originale, ça vaut le coup !).
Un must-have, comme disent nos amis d'outre-Eurostar...
