Lucifer-Big gun,LP,1972,UK

Who is Lucifer? According to the liner notes (and photos), the group were four musicians who often played together in a cave in Arizona, and perhaps in the acid-ravaged mind of Peter "Lucifer" Walker (ex-Purple Gang) this version was a reality. But for the rest of us, Lucifer was Walker's solo project (meaning, he invented the other guys) recorded in 1972 in the UK (and thankfully not in a cave), and originally released on Private Press.

Nice one- most people seem to hate it, but for me "Big Gun" is such a cool album.

Does anyone know where I might find an upload of Lucifer's 2nd LP, "Exit"? Would love to hear it.

A CD reissue (a la "Big Gun") would be even better!!
