Background: Released in 1967 on the tiny International Artists label, Easter Everywhere was the second album by the 13th Floor Elevators.
On their groundbreaking debut album, the 13th Floor Elevators sometimes sounded as if they were still learning how to work with the strange beast of their own creation known as psychedelic rock. But their second set, 1967’s Easter Everywhere, found them a great deal more comfortable and confident with their loose and hypnotically trippy approach. Easter Everywhere doesn’t have an out-of-the-box classic cut like “You’re Gonna Miss Me” or “Fire Engine” from The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, but in many ways it’s a more cohesive and consistent work, and the subtle but effective structures of the longer tracks grow and develop through repeated listenings, while rockers like “She Lives (In a Time of Her Own)” and “Levitation” pack a surprisingly visceral punch. S… Even if less influential than The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators, Easter Everywhere is every bit as compelling and a true benchmark of early psychedelic rock — not bad for an album produced by Kenny Rogers’ brother.
