Trading Places present a reissue of Tear Gas's self-titled album, originally released in 1971. Glasgow's boogie proggers Tear Gas grew out of the Mustard band. Debut LP Piggy Go Getter was a blend of hard boogie rock with psychedelic prog leanings and although their eponymous second album continued in roughly the same direction, the musicianship is far stronger here and the prog side of things more nuanced, as heard on songs like "The First Time". Somehow the deserved fame was not forthcoming, leading the group to morph into the Sensational Alex Harvey band and lead singer David Batchelor to a stellar production career. Yet, Tear Gas remains the best of their hard-to-find catalog, appealing to hard rockers and prog fans alike. 180 gram vinyl. Licensed by Cherry Red.
