Roky Erickson - Don't Slander Me

Lest the reader question the appropriateness of inclusion of this album in the collection, I would point out that "The Damn(ed) Thing" was inspired by Ambrose Bierce's similarly-titled horrific short story. That said, this should already be familiar to most lurkers in the Swamp; if not, by all means, ignore my blather and get it! This album also includes the borderline-Lovecraftian "Bermuda," exploring the mysteries of the titular triangle, and "Burn the Flame," famous for its inclusion on a certain zombie film's soundtrack. Enough exposition, though, I need not justify my actions to the world.
"And, God help me! the Damned Thing is of such a colour!"
