Product Description & Reviews

The ONLY release to cover the 40-year career of one of rock's most influential cult artists! From the garage-psych sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators to his brilliant, chilling tracks with the Aliens, Spades and other projects, these 43 cuts paint Roky's definitive musical portrait: You're Gonna Miss Me; Fire Engine; We Sell Soul; Tried to Hide; Dust; Bermuda; I Think Up Demons; Bloody Hammer; Anthem (I Promise); Please Judge , and more that could only have sprung from this man's mind! I Have Always Been Here Before is the kind of anthology fans only dream about--a beautifully designed 43-track overview of an entire career. And not just any career, but that of an incredibly talented--if troubled--musician whose legacy has been ill served by a bewildering array of semi-legitimate releases. Enter the Roky Erickson Trust, established to provide for his well being and secure his artistic reputation. This Trust-approved collection spans 30 years and includes selections from the Spades, the 13th Floor Elevators, and solo Roky. Highlights from the latter include the unhinged "Don't Shake Me Lucifer," tender "You Don't Love Me Yet," and the haunting title track (but alas, no "I Walked With a Zombie"). I Have Always Been Here Before is a double-gatefold CD set with 30-page booklet. It is sure to stand as the last word on one of America's finest and most fascinating musical figures. --Kathleen C. Fennessy
