However, they did leave behind a small but perfectly-formed legacy in the shape of In From The Cold, a blistering, 52-minute slab of turn-of-the-decade British psychedelic / progressive blues rock that, in January 1970, became the first release on Decca's new underground label Decca Nova.
With Weston's frenzied, proto-metal guitar heroics matched all the way by Steve Bailey s powerful, Spooky Tooth-style lead vocals, the album received encouraging reviews, only for the band to split on the eve of its release. Now a major collectable, In From The Cold has been heavily bootlegged over the last couple of decades, but now receives a long-overdue, first-ever official reissue.
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.
