Background: Released in 1970, Medusa was the second album by Trapeze.

Produced by John Lodge of the Moody Blues, the album did not chart, but has long been considered a cult classic. 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.
