    What a wonderful mix. The 13th Floor Elevators version of “May the Circle Remain Unbroken” is a revelation! I can’t remember the last time I heard something so desolate as that song. In a weird way, it reminds me of El Paso.

    Amazing, just amazing. Thankyou kindly for this mix!

    I love you, Office Naps!

  8. Glad y’all are digging the mix. The 13th Floor Elevators is an especial favorite of mine; weird even by their standards, to me it always seemed like the sound of Roky Ericson teetering on the abyss…

    Great mix Danny! I get to hear Scott Walker, the Buffalo Springfield and the Elevators all in the same bag. Very cool!

    Thank you!

    Thank you for a great blog!

  12. Thanks, all!

    I’ve posted a new version of the mix. Same songs, better fidelity.

    So much to get into on this mix! who the hell were sound vendor? a truly crazed track.

    but why is the stereo mix over a minute shorter? something to do with the dopler effect?

  14. Very astute, emberglance! I actually tightened up the mix a bit on the new version (i.e., there’s more overlap between some of the songs now). Plus, as you note, there’s the Dopler effect to contend with.

    Don’t know anything about the Sound Vendor (except that it’s great, of course). I *believe* that they were a Los Angeles band – or their label was, at least.

  15. Paul says:

    Mister Sun could have been a 13th floor elevators track.
    Great mix. Really like the Electric Flag track and the way it comes in after “Will the circle…”. Cheers

    Concurring, concurring, concurring! You did such a smooth job mixing everything, and I’m VERY much digging this being a single mp3. It gives appreciation and interest to every song. I’ve been playing this every day since I grabbed from your site. Can’t wait for the next one.

    Listened to this again for the first time since January, back-to-back with Part 2. EPIC! Again, fantastic work here.

    Any chance of you ever posting that John Wood version of ‘Maiden Voyage’ on it’s own in the not-so-distant future? Easily one of the coolest covers I’ve never heard!

    -Mr. Attention

  19. Hi Mr. Attention – here ya go:

    John Wood, “Maiden Voyage”

    Wow, man. I just got randomly tuned onto your site, and I feel like I won a prize or something. I’ve never dug into any of this music, but it’s blowing my mind.

    Thanks so much, these mixes are just rad as shit.
