New 13th Floor Elevators / Red Crayola Vinyls on International Artists
According to Shindig magazine's website, two new vinyl 45 rpms have been issued on International Artists for the first time in 40 years. This is most welcome news. The 13th Floor Elevators' lost sixth single, planned for 1968 but for unexplained reasons left completely unissued, "Wait For My Love," is finally being pressed, as is the Red Crayola's "Hurricane Fighter Plane," both with "correct" label artwork for the time in which they should have been released. Both have been remixed by Sonic Boom and are limited to 2,000 copies. Along with the most recent spate of reissues, this is the first time International Artists material has been intelligently reissued since ... er ... well actually IA has never been intelligently reissued, come to think of it. So this is a completely new experience.
