LP Ltd edition YELLOW vinyl, Comic Book insert, Bumper sticker & DL card with Bonus live track. “Epic” ***  AllMusic. The final instalment to the trio of masterpieces from the legendary British rock group, The Groundhogs’ gets a special reissue for first time since 1991 on yellow vinyl. Treading more progressive realms ‘Who Will Save The World’ sees Tony McPhee moving away from the blues territory of their earlier releases and towards a heavier more psychedelic sound. Achieving Top 10 album success back in 1972, ‘Who Will Save The World’ is the last record that features the classic line up of Tony McPhee, Pete Cruickshank and Ken Pustelnik. A definitive collector’s item as part of the ongoing Fire Records catalogue campaign. This special reissue features the iconic artwork accompanied by a deluxe comic book insert, a bumper sticker and postcard, along with sleeve notes and an interview with the original Marvel artist Neal Adams. Also includes a bonus download of an unreleased live recording from their final live show in Pocono, USA. “Having scaled such heights, it’s perhaps no wonder that ‘Who Will Save The World’ saw them assuming mythical powers.” Uncut. “Fighting pollution, over-population and war, McPhee brought in keyboards mellotron and multi-tracked guitars for a dark, disorientating sci-fi journey through a cyanide poisoned Earth” Mojo. Track Listing: Side A. 1 Earth is Not Room Enough 2 Wages of Peace 3 Body in Mind 4 Music is the Food of Thought. Side B. 1 Bog Roll Blues 2 Death of the Sun 3 Amazing Grace 4 The Grey Maze. (Bonus track available as DL only. Music Is The Food Of Thought (Live at the Pocono Festival, Pennsylvania, 1972)
