RE: (TV) Blow-Up Authorship


My memory of this question about authorship:   Television/Verlaine considered their version of the the Erickson song, "Fire Engine" to have been so different (Verlaine
 changed many if not most of the original lyrics and maybe even the melody/guitar itself somewhat ---although having never heard the 13th Floor Elevators' version I don't know
 about melody being altered)  that they did not give a credit to Erickson.


PS:  I am not implying that this was/is correct or even honorable.
Who has heard the original and can you tell us about the diffrence in lyrics or/and melody?

My ROIR cassette copy and Danceteria CD both have it correct.
