SONG OF THE DAY The Spades – We Sell Soul


Roger Kynard “Roky” Erickson’s first notable group was The Spades who scored a regional hit with the 1966 classic psych track, ‘We Sell Soul.’

The song is included as an unlisted bonus track on Erickson’s 1996 ‘All That May Do My Rhyme’ CD and was adapted as “Don’t Fall Down” by the 13th Floor Elevators for their first album. The Spades also created the original version of “You’re Gonna Miss Me”, which later became a hit for 13th Floor Elevators and this was featured on the compilation album The Best of Pebbles Volume 1.  ‘We Sell Soul’ is a great track, check it out above.
