Originally issued on the Vertigo label in 1971, Local Anaesthetic was the first album to be issued under the Nirvana name to feature writer, vocalist & producer Patrick Campbell Lyons in sole charge of a recording project, following the amicable departure of writing partner Alex Spyropoulos some months before, following a trio of innovative Nirvana albums for Island Records & Pye Records and a UK hit single in the song ‘Rainbow Chaser’.

Local Anaesthetic saw Campbell Lyons take a more “progressive” direction, with the album comprising two side long suites which featured guest contributions from saxophonist Mel Collins (King Crimson) and the band Jade Warrior among others.

Original vinyl copies of the album now attain vast sums at auction, making this Esoteric Recordings edition most welcome.
