13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS - Easter Everywhere US MONO PROMO NM SHRINK Posturos Psych
13th Floor Elevators
1967 OG MONO / Promo Pressing
Still in Shrink!!!
“Posturos” Mislabeled Sleeve!!!
For Sale is the rare US Mono Promotional copy of the Texas Psych band's seminal 2nd album! The ink used on the cover is very prone to fingerprint damage, so copies in this condition are extremely rare! Also intact is the delicate lyric sleeve. As Elevators fans know, the mono version of this is extremely scarce. And this is indeed a distinct mix, not a folded down version of the stereo mix!
From the 2009 Charly reissue:
"The mono edition of this album is ridiculously rare - surviving IA paperwork suggests only very few were pressed as white label promos for AM radio, and even fewer as mono stock copies (the paperwork suggests as few as 120 copies) that were probably only sold to order. The mono mix offers a more solid sound throughout, with a notably heavier bass mix compared to stereo. There are also some obvious differences: the jug on 'She Lives (In a Time of Her Own)' is far more prominent; 'Levitation' has a double tracked vocal; Roky's harmonica solo on 'I Had to Tell You' is far clearer."

MATRIX INFO:SIDE 1: IAM 5- SIDE 1 1C (handwritten)SIDE 2: IAM-5 SIDE 2 1C (handwritten)
Vinyl is EX / NM, with some very light wisps from the inner sleeve that do not affect play.
Sleeve is EX / NM, the entire cover is in the shrink with just a tiny bit of wear on the plastic shrink (cover is in beautiful condition. The numbers 2.00 are written on the outside shrink but they did not bleed through to the cover. I’m assuming this was the price of the record back in 1967.)
Legendary “Posturos” mislabel instead of Postures!
Includes inner lyric sleeve in beautiful condition.
This is an unbelievable psychedelic gem! Don’t let this record pass you by!
