Pussy were a hard rocking band with no pretensions of being super musicians or technical geniuses. If it seemed like fun, it was worth a try, which explains a lot about their sound and direction. Managed and produced by Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), Pussy was formed from the ashes of Jerusalem, well known among 1970s hard rock enthusiasts thanks to their stone-cold classic 1972 Deram label debut album. These 1973 Pussy recordings, with Paul Dean and Ray Sparrow of Jerusalem along with Brian Goff on guitar, were long-rumored to be an unreleased second Jerusalem album. It is not that: this is a different hard-edged guitar beast. Although Pussy kept the raw, no rules attitude from Jerusalem, which sets both bands apart from many others of the era, there seems to be a touch of Ziggy Stardust crunchy space glam in the mix for the Pussy recordings. Ian Gillan was far more proactive this time around, too - he played piano and percussion, and was responsible for many backing vocals on the songs. On stage anything could happen-no rules of course! Pussy gigged all over the UK and Germany, very much in the same way as Jerusalem had done. They recorded and released one single on Deram and then went on to record tracks between 1972 and 1973 with Brian Goff taking over for Bob Cooke on guitar. The recordings on this very album were meant to be for their debut album - which was never released at the time. Lion Productions and Rockadrome are proud to present here what was to have been the Pussy debut album, plus bonus tracks from the original Pussy single and a studio track recorded in 1972 with Jerusalem guitarist Bob Cooke. Features more than 40 minutes of material taken from the original master reels.
