Nucleus - Snakehips Etcetera vinyl lp (due to size and weight, this price for the USA only. Outside of the USA, the price will be adjusted as needed)

By the time of this 1975 Vertigo release, all the famous guys were gone and it was a completely different band than earlier. And that cover!
BUT: Nucleus never made a bad album. This is a very good album hiding in a stupid cover.

“First released on Vertigo in 1975, the distinctive rolling grooves, growling basslines, and blasting horns of Snakehips Etcetera combined to present Nucleus's most energetic record. Genius trumpeter and visionary composer Ian Carr was one of the most respected British musicians of his era.
With all restraint out the window, 1975's pimped-up Snakehips Etcetera is the outrageous -- in both cover art and sound -- follow-up to the brooding Under The Sun from 1974. It's perhaps not one for the jazz purists. It finds Nucleus pared down to a core group of six, with Carr, Bob Bertles (sax), Ken Shaw (guitar), Geoff Castle (keys), Roger Sutton (bass), and Roger Sellers (drums) comprising the collective. Snakehips Etcetera reflects a period where the compositions start to become a little more direct and less-cerebral in comparison to some of Nucleus's previous releases. This one rocks, swings, and funks with no little soul. And more than a little jazzy sleaze. The album has a real live, jamming feel to it, no surprise given the extent to which they were touring at the time.
Remastered from the original Vertigo master tapes by Simon Francis. Cut by Cicely Balston at AIR Studios.”
