Product Description

Product Description

Buffalo's third album: Only Want You For Your Body, the last with the classic line-up of Dave Tice (Count Bishops), John Baxter, Pete Wells (Rose Tattoo) and Jimmy Economou, was released in 1974. The album sits comfortably next to Volcanic Rock as one of the most outrageously heavy and ground-breaking stoner rock albums ever released in Australia. With 6 further Tice/Baxter classics, including "I'm A Skirt Lifter, Not A Shirt Raiser" and "Kings Cross Ladies", the album cemented Buffalo's reputation as Australia's premier hard rock band. The wildly tasteless cover design featured an obese, screaming, semi-naked woman shackled to a torture rack. On the back cover, the band revelled in their role as leering, lascivious Aussie yob rockers, with Tice wearing a devilish grin while clad in his black leather strides 'n' braces and brandishing a bullwhip. It was just a bit of harmless fun, yet outraged record store managers across the land refused to stock the record, some eventually placing it in a brown paper bag to hide the offending images. The bonus tracks on Only Want You For Your Body are the mono single version of "What's Going On", and a live version of "United Nations" from the ABC TV show GTK (Get To Know). Please note: there have been several unauthorised Buffalo CD's released over the past 10 years - these reissues of Buffalo will be the first ones that are both fully licensed, and done with the full co-operation of the band themselves.

This, their 3rd album is more tighter and heavier than their previous recordings, and keeps on going from start to finish without slowing down too much. The cover art was even more controvertial than ever. This time it's an overweight woman shackled to a torture rack ( how did they get away with that ?). If you think that is crass, what about the title of the opening track on the album; the brilliantly un P.C " I'm a skirt lifter, not a shirt raiser" ( it was the 70's after all). The following track " I'm coming on" is a good cover of the 10 years after song, and the track " stay with me" is not a cover of that excellent Faces number, but an original, and a great metal tune too. And the record just gets better and better, with the hard rockin'" what's going on", followed by 2 longer tunes "kings cross ladies" and " united nations", that rock from start to finish and never tone down the energy that goes throughout the album.
Buffalo are not that well known here in the U.K, and their first 3 albums are a good example of Aussie heavy rock that helped pave the way for the likes of rose tattoo, and of course the mighty AC/DC.

Good old Aussie, yobbo, stoner rock. Hey look, back then we young blokes didn't give a toss and were out to bog off parents and elders in general (I suppose it's a generational thing).. the lads in Buffalo are of the same breed hence the outrageous artwork on the cover and the irreverent lyrics. Oh, it warms the cockles of my heart when I imagine how it would p!ss off women's libbers..!! If you thought Spinal Tap's "Smell The Glove" album cover may have been offensive then it would pale next an overweight broad on a torture rack pictured on the front of OWYFYB. No great revelations in the music here.. how would I describe it? Maybe "Black Sabbath with a wry grin and a sense of humour". There are no dumb, mopey ballads pandering to the already inflated egos of females.. no! This is blokey stuff. Grab your favourite pale ale, kick back and PLAY IT LOUD, OKAY..???

The Australian "Aztec Records" release comes it a 6-face digi pack along with a booklet insert. Lots of info and pics. Also there are a couple of bonus tracks. Since this was originally released on the Vertigo label, the cd itself has a Vertigo label imprint albeit the latter day one (They used the "spiral" for "Volcano Rocks"). All in all, a very classy package typical of "Aztec Records".
