Here’s an LP you don’t get to see every day. A very rare heavy blues/rock album that disappeared without trace upon its release in 1970. Buyers were most probably put off by the very ugly sleeve! Which is a shame as the playing on this album is excellent. Very early ‘Fleetwood Mac’ style blues, but without the songwriting genius of Peter Green, otherwise this would have been a true gem of an LP. Still a great listen though and well worth getting hold of a copy…if you can find one!
There’s a mono version too, with the catalogue number of DN15.
There are two versions of Judas Priest’s seminal 1976 LP on the Gull label (GULP 1015). I have found an alternative version from the Decca pressed version, one pressed by Pye Records. Both Decca and Pye manufactured and distributed for Gull but I am now wondering whether Decca was the original pressing and Pye a later reissue…? And therefore, does that follow for ALL releases on Gull…are there two versions of each original release? Watch this space for developing news!
Here are both label styles (and the rear sleeves differ too, go to the album page here to see the variations):
Oh, and by the way…the Pye pressed version glows red when held up to the light (just like all mid-70s pressed Pye records).
