First Step Beyond
Vinyl LP Record
Had it ever made the leap between tape and wax, First Step Beyond could have forever altered the perception of Chicago's horn-rock history. Instead, this mish-mash of Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Amon Duul II remained petrified in the Corycian Caverns, or rather the drummer's basement since 1975. Housed in cushy mock-velvet and screened in blood red and gold, and art directed from the band's elaborate original stage props and artwork, we have positioned this unreleased opus to finally reach its destination: the turntables of potsmoking teenagers, young and old.
