elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth.
Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post.
In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.
The 13th Floor Elevators should need no introduction here at Digital Meltd0wn. I have covered their studio albums, as well as several solo albums by singer Roky Erickson, here in the past. This recording has been issued under various titles over the years, with the album cover and track listings for each version differing from one another. While this may be frustrating for collectors, what truly matters is that this recording offers a rare peak at the Elevators performing live while they were at their peak. This recording was actually made one month before their debut album, "The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators", was recorded. It was recorded at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco on September 30, 1966. Not only do they perform several songs from "The Psychedelic Sounds of the 13th Floor Elevators" album, but they also cover a few hits from the Beatles, Chuck Berry, and Buddy Holly. For those wondering, I'll explain my recent lack of activity and the disappearance of Psycho Cat from the list of blog authors tomorrow.
