First ever legit vinyl reissue of this progressive hard-rock private pressing from Texas, 1974.

 

Excellent dual guitars, keyboards, melodic vocals, West Coast touches…Think Allman Brothers, early ZZ Top, Wishbone Ash, Homer…Top notch pro-sounding recording and superb musicianship.

 

“Jungle Lady” saw the light in two different pressings: the original white label LIPS vinyl from 1974 is the first pressing, and the red LIPS label is a remix done later in Nashville, possibly around 1975. This Out-sider reissue is taken from the remix version, as it was always believed to be “hotter” than the original pressing.

 

One of the classics since the early days or rare psych records lists, championed by influential tastemakers such as Paul Major.

“Personal fave with TX/Westcoast barband mystique fulla spooky organ, hot guitar licks & warm vocals on the folkrocky ballads. Has a seedy singles bar pick-up music undercurrent I dig & fantastic gatefold cover art” – Paul Major
