THIS SERIES IS GOING OUT OF PRINT, LAST COPIES !
The pressing plant found a few jackets on this one! About to be gone forever. They have plain white labels, but the back of the record lists the tracks.
This is one of five volumes in the series that collects songs by Texas bands; the others are Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 11, Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 12, Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 13, and Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 23. "We Sell Soul" by the Spades was a regional hit by one of the first bands headed by Roky Erickson; he was one of the founding members of the legendary psychedelic rock band 13th Floor Elevators. Houston's Neil Ford – also spelled Neal Ford – was in a succession of bands including the Ramadas. Their "Shame on You" was included on Essential Pebbles, Volume 2.
