Trapeze ‎– Medusa (1970)

Medusa is the second album by English hard-rock combo Trapeze, released in 1970 on Threshold. With frontal bass and refined guitar on equal footing throughout much of this set, the two instruments double-up and duel across the foreboding lurch of “Make You Wanna Cry” and the rattling raunch of “Your Love Is Alright.” The set is book-ended by the gravelly, rustic-tinged power-wailer “Black Cloud” and the arresting soft/heavy contrast of the album’s title track.
