The original plan for Cactus was to release a debut album with the super group line-up of Vanilla Fudge rhythm section bassist Tim Bogart and drummer Carmine Appice together with guitarist Jeff Beck and singer Rod Stewart, though Beck's car accident and Stewart joining Ron Wood in The Faces counteracted that.
Eventually joining Bogart and Appice were guitarist Jim McCarty (Mitch Ryder's Detroit Wheels) and singer Rusty Day from Ted Nugent's Amboy Dukes for this 1970 self-titled album that is arguably the highlight in their catalogue.
Cactus is available as a limited edition of 1,000 individually copies on translucent red colored vinyl.
Cactus may have never amounted to anything more than a half-hearted, last-minute improvised supergroup, but that don't mean their eponymous 1970 debut didn't rock like a mofo... one of the best hard rock albums of the then brand-new decade, bar none.
