Offered for sale is an early 1970s UK pressing of the hard rock classic Squawk by Budgie.

About this copy: This copy of Squawk is an early second pressing from the UK, on the “rainbow” MCA label.

The cover is VG+, with slight general wear and a punch hole in the upper right hand corner.

The disc is M- and appears to have had little, if any, play.

A nice copy of a terrific LP.

Background: Squawk was the second album from UK’s Budgie, and while it got good reviews and featured an interesting cover from Roger Dean, the album didn’t sell particularly well and was soon deleted.

Allmusic.com gave Squawk a 4 star review:

Having acquired a small cult following with its first album, Budgie offered a second dose of abrasive, forceful heavy metal that, like its predecessor, drew on influences ranging from Cream to Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. .. For all its strengths, Squawk didn’t turn Budgie into the well-known outfit it should have been. Budgie’s followers were a devoted bunch, but unfortunately, there weren’t nearly enough of them.
