Epic, wailing proto metal of extreme importance. This is the first record by the obscure and highly ungoogle-able British 3 piece known as Gun. In addition to being the origin of the classic hit, Race With the Devil (later covered by Judas Priest and Girlschool), this was the first album cover done by Roger Dean (who went on to do all that awesome Yes, Uriah Heep, Atomic Rooster, Budgie, ect ect). That said, this record is obviously special for a number of reasons. None more important than the fact that just about every song on here is a pure fucking golden nugget of post-psych proto-metal. If you already have it, cool. If you don't, I would recommend it highly.
Here’s Girlschool doing Race With the Devil
Forgive the goofball camera work of whoever put this up on youtube and give this track a spin. The Sad Saga of The Boy and the Bee. It’s one of my favorites. Other songs of note, all of them. You will enjoy this record.
