Apple - Mother Love Bone

Before PEARL JAM and SOUNDGARDEN there was MOTHER LOVE BONE! Hailing from Seattle the name Mother Love Bone is now legendary amongst all rock fans. After the demise of one of Seattle's key rock groups - Green River, who were forerunners in the early grunge scene that was soon to explode out of Seattle, members Stone Gossard, Bruce Fairweather and Jeff Ament recruited Gary Gilmour and Andy Wood to complete the final line up of Mother Love Bone. With their initial release, the six track Shine EP causing a huge amount of interest the band's first album "Apple" quickly followed. Employing a 1970's rock sound on tracks such as "Stardog Champion" and "Holly Roller", guitar histrionics on "Come Bite the Apple" and a gentler groove on "Man of Golden Words". "Apple" gave the band a promising future! However, just as Apple was due for release in March 1990 Wood's tragic death from a heroin overdose caused the band to disband. Wood 's friend Chris Cornell from Soundgarden began work on a Temple of the Dog tribute project with members of Mother Love Bone and the unheard of Eddie Vedder, this was the beginning for Pearl Jam! This album has now been deleted for nearly 12 years! Containing the original album tracks and original artwork plus two rare bonus tracks, digitally remastered, this album will be Lemon Recordings first release and is a Rock Collector and Grunge fan must have.

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.
