Psych Comp - I Can See For Miles

Mojo magazine, April 2009

Fifteen lost nuggets from America’s psychedelic underground! This psych comp has: The 13th Floor Elevators (Roky Erickson), The Red Crayola, The Music Machine, The Bubble Puppy, Lost & Found, The Chocolate Watchband and many more! This collection really highlights the Texas Connection.

The 13th Floor Elevators title, "(I've Got) Levitation" might be a better title for this great-great grandson of the mighty Nuggets compilation and subsequent boxed sets, and naming this superb collection after a Who song which isn't even contained amongst the fifteen tracks (but does fit nicely with Mojo Magazine's multiple-version WHO cover this issue) is an oddity, but there's no argument with the great selection of music from First Crew To The Moon, The Mystery Trend and others.

1 First Crew to the Moon - The Sun Lights Up the Shadows of Your Mind
2 The Mystery Trend - Johnny Was a Good Boy
3 Terry Manning - Guess Things Happen That Way
4 13th Floor Elevators - (I've Got) Levitation
