Escalator helicopter full album

Escalator is the only album by the Sam Gopal band, released in 1969 on the small Stable Records label. The band also released a single "Horse", with the B-side a Willie Dixon cover "Back Door Man", just before the release of the album, which the re-released album includes as bonus tracks. Ian Fraser Kilmister, later known as Lemmy, joined the band after playing in The Rockin' Vickers, but appears as Ian Willis, as he was considering changing his surname to that of his stepfather George Willis.
