SNAX 621 CD

'This new pressing - especially on the stereo version - is astounding. It has a clarity, depth and immediacy which makes the album even more an object of wonder than it already was.' Kieron Tyler, theartsdesk.com

2CD set with extensive new sleevenotes in a rigid digibook comprising mono & stereo versions of the band’s groundbreaking album.  Lovingly remastered by Sonic Boom from the original master tapes for the first time since the 1967 release and featuring the first-ever reissue of the rare mono mix album.  Bonus material includes alternate mixes and demo tracks. 

Over the last few years Charly has embarked on a labour of love to re-issue all of the original albums released on the legendary Texas psychedelic label International Artists label as distinctive limited luxury editions. Following releases of albums from The Golden Dawn, Bubble Puppy, Lost and Found, Endle St Cloud and all the original albums from The 13th Floor Elevators, the series continues with this re-issue of The Red Crayola’s 1967 debut.

Along with The Elevators, The Red Krayola were the mainstays of the International Artists label. The group are recognised in psychedelic circles as producing some of the weirdest music ever - combining elements of avant-garde and garage with wild, experimental freak outs and chilling stripped down songs which sounded unlike anything from the Sixties.

The album has been re-mastered for this release from the original master tapes by Pete Kember, aka Sonic Boom, formerly of Spaceman 3 and producer of MGMT and Panda Bear. The 2CD set contains both mono and stereo versions along with bonus tracks, one of which is completely unreleased. The mono disc also has the tracks re-adjusted so the freeform freakouts are taken out and the musical tracks play as a complete set (after the original album)

This luxury 2 CD digibook edition of the album features an extensive booklet written by IA authority Paul Drummond with a preface from Sonic Boom.
