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.

Released on 27/09/10. May of 1995 saw the long-awaited release of the Wildhearts second full length album, P.H.U.Q. . The album was the band's greatest success to date, reaching a number six in the UK charts. Released originally on East West, the CD came inside a limited edition velvet slip case that was only available for the first month of its release.
The album diverged from earlier releases with a collection of subtly darker and more involved tracks that still offer the classic sound of the Wildhearts ,chunky riffage and catchy melodies. The band bring on the usual pounding rock anthems you know and love them for, with tracks such as I Wanna Go Where The People Go , Just In Lust and Nita Nitro . Their energy seems to have tripled with these riff heavy rock numbers. Complementing these tracks by the sheer contrast are the slower, quieter songs such as Jonesing For Jones , Be My Drug and In Lilly’s Garden .
This 2CD collection contains all the b-sides from the era housed in a slipcase, the booklet contains notes by Classic Rock’s Dave Ling and extensive artwork with photos and memorabilia from the era, all approved by Ginger himself.
