Roky Erickson-"Goodbye Sweet Dreams" – He Once Rode the Rock and Psych 13th Floor Elevators, Leaving 4 Seminal Albums In the Groups Wake - He Has Battled a Schizophrenic Presence Since ‘68 and Rides On- From the 2010 LP, "True Love Cast Out All Evil"

Roky is a poet, musician, singer, father and schizophrenic. He now falls toward Earth in a more gentle and experienced configuration. It can be heard in his vocalization and within the missive he shares. His refrains offer dreams gone very wrong and very right. They are undisguised invocations.

T-Bone Burnette - "Nothing In Return" - The Roky Erickson Persistent Pearl as Performed Delicately By T-Bone Burnette - From The 1990 Roky Tribute Album, "Where The Pyramid Meets The Eye"

Roky Erickson caught my psyche in ’65, before schizophrenia became his calling card to a new notoriety. His 13th Floor Elevators are easily an influence still being negotiated in the Rock pastures. This T-Tone version of his nostalgic ‘Nothing In Return” is a deep reminder of his hurting wisdom.
