Released: Sep 1967
The Elevators' debut established the band as lysergic garage punks. Their sophomore effort from 1967, in contrast, is a nuanced evocation of the band's religious pursuit of psychedelic consciousness. Yes, the mysterious jug percolates and Roky Erickson shrieks like a midnight banshee. But Easter Everywhere broods with hazy drones and mystical poetry, including the eight-minute "Slip Inside This House." This 2003 reissue sports live material from '66 and '67, and the band is on fire.
