A truly Classic
Rock album that has stood the test of time. A blend of classic blues based rock
music fused with soul, funk and occasional heavier elements it marks the
crowning glory of Trapeze. Recorded in 1970 just as the band changed from being
a five piece to becoming a power trio , with Glenn Hughes , Mel Galley , Dave
Holland. With hindsight you could say rather like one of their influences
Cream, Trapeze were something of a budding super group with Hughes later
joining Deep Purple , Galley joining Whitesnake and Holland joining Judas
Priest. Medusa the album was written by the band members and produced by John
Lodge, of the Moody Blues, and released on the Moodies own Threshold label.
They toured the world with it, and on occasion even had John Bonham sit in when
they played his favourite song Jury.

The album, originally released in 1982 by RCA Active, began life during sessions for "Sonic Attack” in 1981 and continued into the first months of the following year. The resulting album was a very different HAWKWIND release which utilised synthesisers and electronic music to great effect. Fused with Hawkwind's unique space rock style, the album gave the band another Top Thirty UK hit album and laid the ground for the "Choose Your Masques” album later in the year.
This Atomhenge reissue includes five previously unreleased recordings from the album sessions and fully restores the limited edition lyric booklet, included with initial pressings of the original album.
