From the 13th Floor Elevators psychedelic innovations, to confinement in the wards of Texas psychiatric facilities from 1968 to 1972, then on to a life permanently altered, the music and voice of Roky Erickson cut through. This week's guest, Psychic Idols' Jim Dingus, brings us The Evil One, a collection of recordings by Roky produced by CCR's Stu Cook. It's a perfect melding of Roky's observations of his haunted inner world with a crack ensemble playing taught, compelling arrangements. This album is fantastic.
