Invasion

LP (Item 150555) Lion/Rockadrome, 1972 — Condition: Near Mint-
Never-heard work from Pussy – a UK group who grew out of the ashes of the earlier Jerusalem project and took over their recording contract for Deram – even though the label only issued a single 45 by Pussy at the time! This package brings together all the lost work by the quartet, and the sounds here are truly tremendous – certainly in the hard rock side of the spectrum, but also with a sneering quality that might almost make them punk precursors, at least in attitude – because these guys are maybe a lot more proficient on their instrument than groups from that scene. Songs are mostly short and super tight – and the vocals have this wonderful production – kind of flanged-out, but also never glammy either. Paul Dean sings lead, and the rest of the group includes Ray Sparrow, Brian Geoff, Bob Cooke, and Ian Gillan on a bit of backing vocals and piano. Gillan handled production, too – and titles include "Take Me Home", "Riding Down The Red Flag", "Pig Mansion", "Feline Woman", "The Knife", "Moonshine", "IFO", "Lady Ella", "Ska Child", "I Keep Remembering You", "A Place In The Sky", and "The Knife".  © 1996-2024, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
