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.
