Oh, thank you, thank you to amazing music blog I Supply the Country with Butter for returning a gem to us. The Bongwater version of “You Don’t Love Me Yet” has been stuck in my head for, oh, about 20 years. And I haven’t heard it in nearly that long.
Probably the finest of all the major label tributes released in the ’90’s, Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye is filled with tuneful renderings of Roky Erickson’s greatest songs. The troubled Texan and former 13th Floor Elevator is honored here by the likes of Julian Cope, R.E.M., Judybats, Butthole Surfers, Primal Scream, ZZ Top, The Jesus & Mary Chain and many other outstanding acts. An excellent and enjoyable ride, to be sure.
