Mogul Thrash were formed by lead vocalist/lead guitarist James Litherland upon his departure from Colloseum. Like that band they explore a bluesy brand of Prog, rooted in John Mayall's Bare Wires era music. Litherland is joined by a very young John Wetton on bass guitar and additional vocals, Bill Harrison drums and a great horn section of Micheal Rosen, Malclom Duncan and future Average White Band member saxophonist Roger Ball.

While the album has long been a collectors item for King Crimson fans due to Wetton's involvement, but it is far more significant than that. Mogul Thrash was one of the rare progressive bands that were extremely adept at the buesier elements of rock. R&B and art rock co-exist more comfortably here than anywhere else in 70's music, including Colloseum itself.

Both Litherland and Wetton are in spectacular form both instumentally and vocally, the keyboardless line-up of the band (aside from a brief cameo on piano by producer Brian Auger) provides the band an intersting pallette in order to arrange these songs, and allows Litherland far more room to stretch out on guitar than did Colloseum. Litherland remakes his classic "Elegy" from Colloseum, Wetton sings lead on the wonderful "St. Peter" the rest of compositions are also top notch.

I've been looking for this album for over 25 years. I'm not dissapointed in the least. Seek this album out if you are a Colloseum fan , King Crimson fan , or a fan of John Wetton's pre-sappy early days. It is well worth it at any price.

This is one of the finest blues-prog albums ever. Great songwriting, inspired playing. Led by the talented and adventurous James Litherland (of Colosseum) fame, who unfortunately seemed to have disappeared from the musicscene shortly after that. Fine songwriter, inventive guitarplayer, distinct vocalist.

And the young John Wetton showing considerable talent and playing some very Jack Bruce influenced lines, which of course isn't a bad place to start for a rising bass-star.

The horns by future Average White Band members are wellarranged, sounding very Colosseum-like, and the sax and trumpet solos really classy.

This album should be classic.

This is really an incredible album.....some fantastic playing here by John Wetton and company.

One thing I will note, tho. The reording was mastered from vinyl....and you can hear the slight ticks and pops in the background. Not to worry, as rare as this album is....anything is better than nothing. Enjoy it ffor what it is.

This is the version I have....There are three different versions available....not sure what their sources were.

MOGUL TRASH is mostly know as one of those "Rock Family Tree" connector bands, as it's membership encompassed John Wetton (Bass, Guitar & Vocals, FAMILY, URIAH HEEP, ROXY MUSIC, KING CRIMSON, UK & ASIA), James Litherland (Lead Guitar & Lead Vocals, COLOSSEUM), Malcolm Duncan (Tenor Sax) and Roger Ball (Alto, Baritone, Soprano Saxophones and Brass Arrangements, Both AVERAGE WHITE BAND) and Michael Rosen (Trumpet, Mellophone & Guitar, ECLECTION). Rounding out the group is powerhouse drummer Bill Harrison. This self-titled and only album for RCA, recorded in 1970 but not released until early 1971, turns out to be ripe for rediscovery. Above average songwriting and hot musicianship makes this an enjoyable listen. Litherland's steaming stereo guitar solo on the first track, "Something Sad", bodes well for the rest of the tune stack. The only slightly weak track is Wetton's solitary vocal showcase, "St. Peter" (co-written with Alan Gorie, another AWB connection!), but even that is redeemed with some excellent piano (and the only keyboards on the album) by Producer, and supposed group-namer, Brian Auger. Wetton's bass playing thoughout though, is primo! This release on the Swedish "collector's" (read Bootleg) label, FLAWED GEMS, would be quite astonishing if there were any lengthy liner notes. All we get on that front is a descriptive paragraph on the back insert. The inside of the booklet is just a group photo, which is a shame, considering that the art reproduction is top notch, including the beautiful picture disc. The GEMS crew have done themselves proud with the sound quality, encompassing the six-track original album, both sides of a non-LP A-Side single, and again astonishingly, five BBC tracks in excellent quality!Read more ›

This is another one of those items; if you're one of the King Crimson faithful you probably want it for the archives. If you're not a big Crimson or John Wetton follower you'll probably want to pass on this fairly trivial 1970 release by these Brits.They are sort of a dime a dozen bluesey/jazzy hippy jam band, not quite prog. Kind of like an English version of Chicago or Blood Sweat And Tears (it's the horns, 2 saxes and a trumpet)only grungier, a little psychedelic, and more blues oriented, though not in the 1-4-5 scheme, just blues influenced. Lots of wah-wah guitar freakout and sort of gruff Claptonesque vocals from James Litherland (who also played with Wetton in Edwards Hand -very rare on RCA from the same year). Wetton provides a brief lead vocal on "St. Peter" and can be heard prominently in the backups. His bass playing, as usual, is outstanding and constantly moving throughout the pieces here.Of course he went on to play much better material than this, as all his fans know.
