"First official release of 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, Iron Claw, 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 Whiskey.' This collection of sixteen original studio tracks documents their existence from 1970 through 1974 and features a wonderful 16-page booklet with extensive liner notes, lyrics and photos!"
