Digitally remastered edition of the 1970 debut album by Tear Gas. Formed in Glasgow at the close of the 1960s, the band featured Eddie Campbell (keyboards), Zal Cleminson (guitar), Chris Glen (bass, vocals), Gilson Lavis (drums) and Andi Mulvey (vocals). Mulvey and Lavis were soon replaced respectively by keyboard player and vocalist David Batchelor, and Richard "Wullie" Monro. This line-up recorded Piggy Go Getter at Regent Sound studios in London in 1970. The album was a fine progressive rock record which gained a release both in the UK and the USA (adorned in an elaborate gatefold sleeve). Tear Gas enjoyed a fine reputation on the European live circuit and would undergo further line-up changes when some months later Hugh McKenna replaced Batchelor and his cousin Ted McKenna (ex-Dream Police) took over from Monro on drums. In August 1972 Zal Cleminson, Ted McKenna, Hugh McKenna and Chris Glen joined forces with vocalist Alex Harvey to form The Sensational Alex Harvey Band who would meet with success and record a series of inventive albums throughout the 1970s. Thanks to the musician's later work with SAHB, the Tear Gas recordings are now highly sought after by collectors.
