(Australia - Import)
Australian Exclusive! By 1972, piano player extraordinaire Warren 'Pig' Morgan had performed a key role in the careers of two of Australia's most legendary blues-rock bands, Chain & Billy Thorpe &The Aztecs. He'd been a founder member of Chain in 1968, and had been instrumental in helping Thorpie establish his reputation as one of the wildest and heaviest blues-rockers of the day. Initially a solo project, it soon became a collaborative effort after Warren asked Billy Thorpe to join in. Christening themselves as Thump'n Pig & Puff'n Billy, they then enlisted the talents of another Aztec (Gil Matthews) and 2 members of Chain (Phil Manning and Barry Sullivan) to record the LP they called 'Downunda'. The single 'Captain Straightman' became a much loved hit. Remastered by Gil Matthews, this deluxe version also features 4 Live bonus tracks 'It Won't Be Long', 'Moving with Rock', 'The Many Successes of Baron Waste' & 'Captain Straightman' along with liner notes by noted Australian rock author Ian McFarlane with a 16 page booklet with rare photos packaged in a 3 panel Digipak. 14 total tracks. Aztec. 2005.
