Golden Dawn

One of the Texas psychedelic '60s groups on the legendary International Artists label, most famous for the 13th Floor Elevators. In fact, the Golden Dawn sounded a lot like the Elevators, although their lead singer had a gentler, more fragile delivery than Roky Erickson. The similarity wasn't terribly surprising given that lead singer George Kinney had grown up with Erickson, and had once played with him in a pre-Elevators group, the Fugitives. Kinney also played in the Chelsea, which for a time included 13th Floor Elevator Powell St. John.

The Golden Dawn became a part of the International Artists roster with the Elevators' help. They released a decent album in the late '60s, Power Plant, that (again, like the Elevators) featured a florid cover, inscrutable liner notes, and inscrutable lyrics. George Kinney's role in the Roky Erickson saga wasn't finished when the Golden Dawn broke up; he financed the publication of Erickson's book, Openers, which helped get Roky out of Rusk State Hospital. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

I love the elevators & i'm wondering why it took sooooo long to find this GEM of an album!?!?!

Another hidden gem from the 60's. I just live for this stuff. Access to music like this is the only reason I can appreciate the 21st Century digital music formats. Otherwise, I dream of the old days and the record stores. Oops! a dated reference. Music used to be more fun then.

Are those pot plants on the album cover? I wouldn't know; maybe some of you hippies would know more about such things.

Really really sweet band. In my mind, they were better than the Elevators, but not many people would agree with me.
