A jazz-tinged, medieval-dabbling and really quite eclectic progressive rock outfit.

There's Colosseum, Jethro Tull and Gryphon in there somewhere

A splendid debut

It is very good. Their only album I believe.

Think Hunky Dory is very probably my favourite Bowie.

Listened to a track by Rustic Hinge (never heard of them before) on the Lullabies For Catatonics £CD box I posted earlier and really liked it, very early Beefheart influence. Anyone got a copy of their album (Replicas) on CD I could cough for, they appear to be very rare, if indeed it was ever produced on CD.

Apparently they were the residue of Arthur Brown's band way back when.

Absolutely his best and one of Rick Wakeman's best as well.

I very nearly bought this, but then played The Man Who Sold The World again and remembered it's not a very good album.

But what a title track!

I’ll admit I bought this for the ‘new’ cover design, already had the original - silly I know but I don’ t care. Actually the album is better than I remembered, remixing by Visconti gives it a better sound. And you are dead right, the title track is superb, although I think Lulu, with Bowie’s involvement did better.

Same here. I never was much of a fan

I like Low and that's about the extent of it

Well, Side 2 was heavily influenced by Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream, but I’ve never been a big fan of Low.

I like my Bowie best between Hunky Dory and Diamond Dogs.

I have three maybe four Bowie albums

Ziggy, Low, Hunky and possibly DD

Bigger in the USA than in Blighty

They weren't great.. I have a few (3 or 4)

This is possibly my fave - I like the cover too.

[Rock & Roll - get it?!]

I have a few as well C. bought during the great vinyl throw away - wish I hadn't bothered. Pretty poor.

I bought it for the same reason (and the hope of a limited random version) They are going through the roof on Discogs.

It’s a terrible cover. No wonder it was changed.

The lovely Ninet Tayeb (she of recent Steven Wilson albums / live performances).

Bit of Bent Knee about this I thought.

Very nice

Thanks for posting it Bob

I really like this album.

Shame they tagged a pretty awful live version of Sweet Little Sixteen on the end. The overdubbed organ is laughable.

Whatever were they thinking?

Anyway, the rest is very robust!

Another of those delightful Grapefruit 3CD boxes, shame this one didn't come in the usual clamshell box but still pretty good stuff.

There is some excellent stuff on there Rob.

The Broughton track's a corker

For those who have not heard it:




The interesting one is Bullet formed by When John Du Cann and Paul Hammond after they left the Atomic Rooster

Sadly dabbling with glam rock - it ain't very robust!

Interestingly the band's name changed from Daemon, later renamed Bullet, then Hard Stuff [as a Bullet already existed]

I saw Hard Stuff once at The Bridge House, Canning Town with my mate Dave who played bass in our band.

The last Heep album I bought - we parted company after that.

Adequate but lacking something the five albums before had
