Shape Notes Everywhere

13th Floor Elevators - May The Circle Remain Unbroken(from Bull of The Woods 1968)

Obviously one of the most haunting covers ever recorded, The Elevators sans Roky let this Carter Family joint drift into oblivion by way of delay. Happens to also be the final song on their final album, being one of the better ways for a band to die off. My only complaint is that its not atleast 20 minutes long. Compairsons to Dadamah's "High Tension House" are proof of a look into what was to come circa 1989 during the summer of love.
