Tapestry Of Delights:
Here is another of those one-off studio bands who only did a few gigs to promote a hastily put together album, which in turn didn't sell many copies. Still they did feature some well-known musicians:- Alan Spenner and Neil Hubbard were both ex-Joe Cocker's Mad Dogs; Ric Grech was ex-Family; Rosetta Hightower and Ian Green ex-Hightower; Mike Woods was ex-Eclection; Smiley De Jones was ex-Maggie Bell and Godfrey McLean was ex-Hummingbird. All but Grech, Green and McLean appeared on the album and the live line-up varied a little from the musos featured on their recordings.
The album consists of a loud, blistering sonic attack that rarely relents. Half the recording is an extended piece called Child Of Nations.
Spenner and Hubbard went on to Kokomo, Grech joined KGB, McLean joined Gonzales, Woods joined Swallow, Van der Bilt joined Elkie Brooks. Spenner and Hubbard were the first to jump ship being replaced by Andy Dalby who went on to Arthur Brown's Kingdon Come.
