Flash Fearless Versus the Zorg Women Part 5 & 6 (RPM RPM 147)

Album recorded at the Chrysalis Studio, London, October-December 1974.

A tongue in cheek tribute to the sci-fi comics of the past formed the basis for this great 1975 Chrysalis gem reissued for the very first time (with a bonus US only single). Featuring a host of guest vocalists, it's a concept set which actually worked! A colour comic book telling the story which came with the original LP is reproduced in full, with detailed sleeve notes.
