1 in stock


Offered for sale is a mid-1970s pressing of the 1970 LP Medusa by Trapeze, featuring Glenn Hughes (later of Deep Purple.)

About this copy: This copy of Medusa is exceptionally clean; this album is notoriously prone to cover wear.

The cover is VG+, with slight wear at the edges and corners.

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

A nice copy of a terrific LP.

Background: It’s odd to see Medusa on the Moody Blues’ Threshold label, but Moodies bassist John Lodge is credited as the producer of this LP, regarded by most as the best album this band ever made. gave Medusa a 4 1/2 star review:

Not only is Medusa the finest offering from ’70s outfit Trapeze, it is one of the decade’s most underappreciated hard rock recordings. With a lineup that consisted of future Deep Purple, Judas Priest, and Black Sabbath members, there seems to be proof that at least a few fellow musicians appreciated this 1971 offering. …. Considering that Medusa predates many similar, and more successful, classic rock LPs from the likes of Bad Company, Nazareth, Foreigner, and others, it’s a wonder that the record isn’t mentioned more when influential albums of this era are discussed.
