Classico fin dalla copertina; poi la voce di Erickson, l'anfora elettrificata ( ! ), i tanti colori sprigionati senza mai cadere nel kitsch e soprattutto una canzone, "You're gonna miss me", rifatta da tanti.

Essential hear - sets a standard. Roky is a live wire ..his influence on Joplin undeniable.

Good raw rock'n'roll. In truth, it's not really that psychedelic, but it is full of edgy rock. Possibly the very first punk album? It's not quite as great as some people claim, in fact I think the songs are completely unmemorable but it still has lots of energy and grit about it.

Feels like a modern album, which speaks volumes to its staying power. A great psychedelic album.

Raw, edgy garage with a queasy, malevolent psychedelic gleam. A glorious atmosphere and great, robust songs throughout. I personally love the electric jug, but I see it's not to everyone's taste! A crucial record for more reasons than just being the first to have the word "Psychedelic" in the title. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys 60s "garage" and the more provocative underground limb of early psychedelic rock.

The jug sounds annoyed me at first, but I have grown to love them. I have even added them to the playlist on our school radio. The kids love Fire Engine.

This is probably the archetypel psychedelic album. Combining Roky Erikson's cerebral lyrics and Stacy Sutherland's trademark 'electric jug' fuzztone/reverb guitar (which was the cornerstone of their arrangements), the Elevators create a unique ethereal folk-rock and rhythmic-boogie 'garage' sound with hints of Tex-Mex. This album is a kind of deranged 'acid' trip version of the Rolling Stones.

You're Gonna Miss Me is probably one of the top 5 garage rock anthems of all time, but I've never been able to listen to the whole album. Maybe I should give it a whole spin.

If it weren't for Hall's annoying "electric jug" which is present in just about every song, the Elevators might have had a bigger following. See if you can get past 3 songs without going mad.
