Medusa (US) - First Step Beyond 1975


From The Numero Group: "You must physically hold this album, kneel at it's altar, we will fail to describe it. Medusa's First Step Beyond might have forever shifted the perception of Chicago Rock history had it managed to make the leap from tape to it's never-realized vinyl pressing. Instead, the conflagration of Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Amon Duul II remained petrified in the Corycian Caverns - otherwise known as the drummers basement. Self produced on four-track in 1975, this lone transmission from Medusa's repertoire appeared on the mysterious Pepperhead label, whose proprietor dissappeared after a "bad trip' and was never seen again. Forged in ceremonial mock-velvet, custom embossed in Gorgon-gold and blood-red, and art directed in accordance with the bands elaborate stage props and artwork, we have positioned this unreleased opus to finally reach it's destination, the turn tables of pot smoking leather clad teenagers young and old."
So, in other words, an unreleased gem from '75 finally seeing the light of day. I love it when this happens!
