Easter Everywhere is the second studio album by the American psychedelic rock band the 13th Floor Elevators. It was released in November 1967, through record label International Artists. For a long time, the album was a hard-to-find collectors' item, until being re-released as a CD by Collectables Records in 1993.The album features the band's distinctive sound on songs ranging from their own psychedelic "Slip Inside this House" to a trippy cover of Bob Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue". "Levitation" ranks among the band's most iconic songs, with its Tommy Hall-penned lyrics and its twisted blues sensibilities, while "Postures" displays a distinct Motown influence. As on the previous album, Tommy Hall's electric jug is prominent in the music. Easter Everywhere was packaged with lyrics printed on the inner sleeve, gold ink on the cover (which flaked off), and full colour pictures on the reverse. The packaging was quite expensive at the time.
