    Tapestry of Delights:
    A Scottish trio from Edinburgh, who were originally known as 1-2-3, they'd been renamed The Clouds by Terry Ellis after he'd become their manager and agent having spotted them playing in a tiny South London club. Although the title track of their debut album was heavily orchestrated much of the remaining material was in a progressive vein. The most commercial track, I'll Go Girl, was included on the You Can All Join In budget compilation ensuring considerable airplay. This was a pop song with nicely sculptured melodies and the album achieved some commercial success but the band's response was to record an album of stage favourites, Up Above Our Heads, which was only released in the USA and Canada. They toured with Jethro Tull and Free but Watercolour Days was a less satisfactory attempt to blend pop and progressivism and they split up soon afterwards.
