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.

Stephen was a founder member and lead singer of Duran Duran along with Nick Rhodes and John Taylor. He left before Simon Le Bon joined and the ensuing international superstardom of the Duranies. Stephen went on to form the band Tin Tin with Mulligan and Dik Davies of Fashion, Andy "Stoker" Growcott of Dexys Midnight Runners and producer Bob Lamb. They released the first version of Kiss Me through Sire Records, topping the U.S. club charts in 1982 with the band headlining gigs in New York with support from fellow label artist Madonna. Stephen went solo in 1983, releasing this, his debut album in 1985 which was the first of a string of successful solo albums using his trademark smooth vocals and catchy melodies. Stephen later shunned the world of pop to form the critically acclaimed folk group The Lilac Time and the Brit-Pop friendly Duffy.
This is the first time that the album has been available on CD in the UK. This album saw a change in musical direction with the introduction of new members to replace the departures of Midge Ure and Barry Adamson. The stylistic change saw the band move away from the band's electronic studio based sound to a more conventional band format. Visage were formed as supergroup of their day, formed by Steve Strange and ex-Rich Kid Rusty Egan, they recruited Billy Currie and Midge Ure from Ultravox, Dave Formula and Barry Adamson from Magazine and John McGeogh from Siouxsie & The Banshees. Members came and went but the band's core remained as Strange and Egan.
This CD reissue features 4 bonus tracks not included on the original 8 track release. These include extended mixes of the two singles taken from the album, 'Beat Boy' and 'Love Glove.
