'Dead Man' is a 13th Floor Elevator descent headlong into southern-fried bloody Sabbath. Released on the Hookah imprint in 1970, the LPs gaping cranium cover, sludged-up blues, and bone-bleached riffs outsold 'Let It Be', if only locally, being far "too psychedelic" and skull-crushing for Houston's
International Artists label to touch. A Texas-bound band except in tracking 'Dead Man' inside the furnace of Phoenix, Josefus strode loud and longhaired amid the oil fields, peddling their own brand of black gold. As US involvement in the Vietnam War peaked and human boots sunk into lunar dust, Josefus powered across the Texas plains, shaking its coliseums awake as openers for the Grateful Dead and Quicksilver Messenger Service. Heavier by tonnage than both the Stones they cover and 'I Want You (She's So Heavy)', Doug Tull, Pete Bailey, Ray Turner, and Dave Mitchell watched their 17-minute funeral pyre title track burn through statewide airplay, glorying in the evil looseness of the FM format.
