Notes on the Tracks

"We Sell Soul" by the Spades was a regional hit by one of the first bands headed by Roky Erickson; he was one of the founding members of the legendary psychedelic rock band 13th Floor Elevators. Houston's Neil Ford – also spelled Neal Ford – was in a succession of bands including "the Ramadas". Their "Shame on You" was included on "Essential Pebbles, Volume 2". These Iguanas are not the same band that launched Iggy Pop's career, although a track by those Iguanas is included on "Highs in the Mid-Sixties, Volume 19".
