2016 repress. "Early '70s Scottish underground heavy rock recordings from this group who were stomping around the UK with the likes of Black Sabbath, Hackensack, Pink Fairies, Juicy Lucy and others from the time, but never released a proper album. Their name was taken from the first line in King Crimson's song '21st Century Schizoid Man.' In the beginning, Iron Claw probably became the world's first Black Sabbath tribute band, as they incorporated the entire first Black Sabbath LP and single into their set. As they went on, their live sets included many originals as well as covers such as 'War Pigs,' 'Fairies Wear Boots,' 'Wicked World,' 'Green Manalishi' and 'Lady Whisky.' This collection of sixteen original studio recordings documents their existence from 1970 thru 1974 and was re-mastered for vinyl by Tony Reed and includes lyrics, liner notes and photos. Housed in heavy gatefold cover with a 12" x 12" insert and an 11" x 17" poster inside. Will appeal to those into heavy psych, hard rock, downer rock and proto-metal sounds from bands like Jerusalem, Necromandus, May Blitz, Hard Stuff, Budgie, Hackensack, Ancient Grease, Incredible Hog, and Leaf Hound."
