Tapestry of Delights: Spedding was born on 17 June 1944 in Sheffield. He is best known as highly-rated session guitarist. He joined Peter Brown's Battered Ornaments in 1967 having previously been in various obscure dance and jazz bands. After they split in 1969 he recorded his first two solo albums, though they made little impact. His debut album, produced by Andrew King, was a very disappointing effort influenced by Bob Dylan and The Byrds, but most of the material was directionless. The second was slightly better. There was also a third Songs Without Words, which only got released on the Continent. He was also with the short-lived Sounds Nice in 1969. In 1971 he joined The Jack Bruce Band playing on both his solo albums. He also had an eighteen month spell with Ian Carr's Nucleus before concentrating on session guitar work with Lulu, John Cale and Dusty Springfield among others.
In Autumn 1972 he formed Sharks with ex-Free bassist Andy Fraser and enhanced his reputation as a rock guitarist considerably during his stay. After their demise in November 1974 he again returned to session work, touring with John Cale and Roy Harper before signing to Mickie Most's RAK label. This lead to a dreadful commercial punk-type single Motor Bikin', which got into the Top 20 (there's no accounting for taste). This was followed by the inevitable solo album. He also played with Bryan Ferry in 1976. He went on to record further solo albums and was a 'member' of The Wombles!, but it was as a session guitarist that he performed best.
Mean And Moody, released in 1985, compiled material from his two Harvest albums. Eight tracks were taken from Backwood Progression including the opening instrumental 'overture' For What We Are About To Hear which leads into the title track itself. The remaining seven tracks are from The Only Lick I Know, including the rockin' title track, the country/soul influenced Dark End Of The Street and the upbeat White Lady. The album also came with a detailed appraisal of Spedding's career written by Roger Dopson.
