180 gram RED Vinyl, Gatefold Sleeve reissue of the classic 1969 Sam Gopal album "ESCALATOR" featuring Motorhead's Lemmy. Sam Gopal took up the tabla in Malaysia at the age of 7, before coming to study music in Britain in 1962. By the mid 1960’s, Indian music was exerting a huge influence on Western rock, most notably on the Beatles (with Indian influences all over ‘Revolver’ and ‘Sergeant Pepper’), but also on the Rolling Stones (exemplified by Brian Jones playing sitar on ‘Paint It, Black’) and the Moody Blues, for whom Justin Hayward played tabla and sitar on the ‘In Search Of The Lost Chord’ album. The time was right for a genuine exponent of Indian music to come to the fore.
