    Fuzz Acid & Flowers:
    Curt Boettcher was a prodigious talent (sadly he died in 1987 at age 43) whose studio wizardry produced sounds and arrangements way ahead of any at the time and The Millennium album was the culmination of this period. He'd started out with the folk group The Goldebriars (two albums on Epic in 1964) then formed a vocal duo, Summer's Children, before getting into production which included The Association's first LP And Then Along Comes and their million-selling Along Comes Mary 45. From then till Millennium he was involved in a plethora of groups and studio projects:- Ballroom (with Sandy Salisbury and Lee Mallory), Your Gang and Friar Tuck (both with Mike Deasy), culminating in Sagittarius (with Gary Usher) which put out a lot of unreleased Ballroom material. In the seventies Curt would issue a solo LP and form California but it's for his creative outburst in the mid-late sixties and those heavenly multi-layered vocal arrangements that he will be remembered.
    Millennium then, were put together as a vehicle for Boettcher's ideas with the intention to weld Fennelly and Stec's rock background with the avant garde pop of Mallory and Salisbury. Boettcher was to 'Lead the way'... and there was a kind of evangelical fervour about it, best heard on their first single It's You. Goldenrod who are thought to have acted as a backing group to Lee Mallory, formed the basis of the remaining personnel, originally becoming involved as part of the "Our Productions" house band led by Mike Deasy.
    Boettcher wrote almost half of the tracks on their pleasant pop/rock album, with Jerry Scheff from Goldenrod contributing Dandelion to their repertoire.
    Boettcher wrote almost half of the tracks on their pleasant pop/rock album, Salisbury, Fennelly, and Mallory providing most of the remainder, with Jerry Scheff from Goldenrod contributing Dandelion (not on the album) to their repertoire. The album took a year to record and was only the second album ever done on 16-track (Simon and Garfunkel's Bookends being the first). Columbia Engineer Roy Halee had pioneered the technique by jerryrigging two eight-track recorders with a third machine feeding the two.
    Stylistically, the album is in the mould of Sagittarius, with the standout cut being the astonishing Karmic Dream Sequence #1. A true voyage into the infinite and six of the most magical minutes that Sixties music has to offer. Group member Sandy Salisbury describes the song: "This piece still evokes everything I felt in those days, from ecstacy to amazement to downright fear. Though I never used drugs, I always felt somehow out of touch when I heard this song - still do. The only explanation for that feeling is that Karmic Dream Sequence somehow tells me that Life is far, far deeper and more fascinating than my limited human mind can comprehend - it makes me want to explore, to experience, to feel, no matter how scary it gets".

    A group with a lush symphonic sound, almost like a cross between King Crimson, Genesis and Moody Blues, although with distinct French undercurrents (as pioneered by Ange).
    Their first album is the best one, and the second the rarest.

    Tapestry of Delights:
    This was one of many bands brought to prominence by DJ John Peel, after they sent him a tape, he signed them to his Dandelion label. They started out as a duo gigging in the Midlands. Their early albums conjured up a very sparse understated atmosphere and contained several love songs. A highlight of their debut album was His Guiding Hand, which was also issued as a 45. They enjoyed Chart success with Pictures In The Sky but then the eccentric Hope-Evans quit and they reformed as a trio with ex-Yardbird Keith Relf on bass. Before 1972 was over, Hope-Evans turned up again and they reverted back to a duo augmented by session musicians for One And One Is One. The title cut and Rising Sun brought them further Chart success and they expanded to a quintet for their next album, Thru' A Five. Thereafter they hit hard times, although former Spencer Davis and Taste bassist Charlie McCracken was involved in a later line-up. Two Man Band, however, was recorded by the original duo of Fiddler and Hope-Evans.
    After their demise, Fiddler teamed up with former Mott The Hoople members in The British Lions and also worked and recorded as a solo artist. In the eighties he joined the ex-Yardbirds project The Box Of Frogs. Hope-Evans helped out Pete Townshend on his 1985 White City Soundtrack and played in a number of part-time groups.
    Their bass player on Thru' A Five, George Ford later played with Cockney Rebel.
