Regarded by many as the first heavy metal album from Spinal Tap, it contains classics including “Big Bottom”, “Brainhammer”, and the light hearted original version of “Stonehenge”. Nigel Tufnel’s fascination with Eastern philosophies directly influenced the instrumental “Hey Buddha”. The cover was a gatefold, and also included ads for non-Tap albums on the Megaphone label.
