Originally released in the UK as the 10 song album "Five Symbols" in 1980 and as "The Evil One" in 1981 (with 5 songs replaced), this definitive album gathers all 15 songs from the Stu Cook (Creedence Clearwater Revival) late 1977-79 produced sessions.

Though it was produced at a time when Roky was struggling to cope with drugs and life on the outside, he hit form on his first post-13th Floor Elevators album, 1981's "The Evil One". It's a masterful collection of songs about zombies, demons, vampires and, yes, even the Creature With The Atom Brain. These tracks, inspired by schlock sci-fi and horror movies and coloured by Roky's distinctive, high-pitched vocal and squealing guitar, are among the maverick performer's best.
