Chicago's reputation will forever be tainted by the
horn-ravaged corniness of their eponymous band. Medusa's 'First Step Beyond' could have forever altered the perception of Chicago rock history had it managed to make the leap from tape to its destined vinyl pressing. Instead, this mish-mash of Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Amon Duul II remained petrified in the Corycian Caverns, or rather the drummers basement. Selfproduced
on four track in 1975, the sole transmission from Medusa's repertoire appeared on the extremely mysterious Pepperhead label, whose proprietor allegedly disappeared after a bad trip and has never been seen again. Housed in cushy mock-velvet and screened in blood red and gold, and art directed from the band's elaborate original stage props and artwork, we have
positioned this unreleased opus to finally reach its destination: the turntables of pot-smoking teenagers, young and old.

Also available: FIRST STEP BEYOND (CD).

SENSATIONAL SAINTS - YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT

Formed in the early '50s under the watchful eye of Tuskegee, Alabama, transplant Charles Chambliss, the Sensational Saints were handpicked from a Cleveland clothing store, a pool room, and from a group of friends singing from a third story window. After years spent rotating ... read more »

 

PISCES (USA) - A LOVELY SIGHT

1969's 'A Lovely Sight', Pisces' only attempt at an LP, never made wax; but the fuzz guitar phrases and tambourine shuffle of 'Dear One' instantly illustrate the band's woozy realm. Deeper inside, bass scales borrowed from Sgt. Pepper give way to Who moves wrecked by bad ... read more »
