Subtitle on cover and label: A non-stop celebration of rock & roll.

A weird album of covers: basically for playing at your (presumably drunken) party and advertised as being 'better than the real thing'. The sleeve is notable for the hair styles of the band. This is the album Jac Holzman says he would prefer to forget (or prefer was forgotten). On the plus side, their version of 'In A Gadda-Da-Vida' is shorter than the original by Iron Butterfly.

Not to be confused with Roxy Music. Group member Bob Segarini was in a number of bands during the 60s and 70s including later Elektra act The Wackers.

The sleeve of this album is notable because it includes a photo of famed Elektra sleeve supremo William S Harvey.

The Incredible String Band Relics of the Incredible String Band (UK release)

Alt sleeve:Relics of the Incredible String Band (UK release)

  • Koeeoaddi There
  • Chinese White
  • No Sleep Blues

Side 2

  • The Minotaur's Song
  • October Song
  • My name is Death
  • A Very Cellular Song
  • Nightfall

Single album release in the UK. The sleeve lists the UK String Band albums as EKS 7254, 7257 and 7258 rather than EUKS with the same numbers, which is confusing as these numbers were sound effects discs in the US but is how the LPs were listed for a while before the Kinney K notation came into force.

I've seen a German release of this single-LP version which uses the American cover.

This number was used for David Steinberg's album 'Disguised as a Normal Person' in the US. This potentially confusing double use of a catalogue number seems to have only occurred with ISB and the use of BRD 1 for a Bread compilation and a 'private' release of an eastern 'mystical' music album on Elektra.

Pedants amongst us will be irritated by the grocer's comma in "1960's"!

Extra tracks from the session, apart from alternate takes of the album, were: 'Lost In The Future' and 'Slide [Slidin' The Blues]' (which may be a jam).

Some (earlier?) copies include an inner sleeve with a photo of Jim Morrison holding a lamb ... yes ... that photo! The version of 'Light My Fire' is the long, album, version.

There was also an earlier cover design seen on at least one white label copy distributed internally at Elektra which featured a very large '13' on the cover but was possibly rejected because you had to look closely at the image to see Jim! Pity, as this was a very striking design.

It did, however, appear on copies in (at least) Venezuela, occupying the otherwise vacant EKS 75009.

David Frye was the comedian who 'did' Richard Nixon. The radio jingles on this album come authentically from the Dallas heartland of radio jingledom. The 'Hail to the Chief ... Dick Nixon' jingle is a showstopper.

  • Beautiful People
  • I'll Be Home
  • Never Ending Song Of Love

Licensed from Philips in Europe. This seemes a curious deal for Elektra, since the New Seekers were unashamedly MOR/Pop ... but Jac has been quoted as saying he was interested in a band he could choose music for and especially as a vehicle for Harry Chapin songs.

  • Death Walks Behind You
  • Vug
  • Tomorrow Night

  • Sleeping For Years
  • I Can't Take No More
  • Nobody Else
  • Gershatzer

Re-sleeved version of UK album of the same name, originally released on B&C CAS 1026 in September 1970. Their previous LP, just called Atomic Rooster, wasn't picked up by Elektra and AFAIK wasn't released in the US. The British release sleeve featured a moody extract from a William Blake painting showing 'man' on all fours, looking fearfully behind him. IMHO this was a rare instance of the Elektra cover not being as good as the UK original. Usually, when Elektra/Bill Harvey re-sleeved an LP, it produced a better result.
