A killer collection of work from the International Artists label – Lelan Rogers' short-lived, but crucially important psychedelic indie! IA is one of those labels that was collectible even when nobody was collecting rare psyche that much – a key company who gave the world some amazing music from The Red Crayola, Roky Erickson, Dave Allen, and others! This compilation's one of the most famous documents of the label – but this new CD version takes things even further – adding in a special book with 40 pages of new note
