    Tapestry of Delights::
    This keyboardist's first significant band was a Birmingham-based pop outfit called The Brumbeats (surprise, surprise) in which he played guitar. This was not the same Brumbeats that issued a 45 on Decca in 1964. He was soon offered a place in another Black Country outfit, Locomotive. When they split in late 1969 Haines formed a new band called The Sacrifice, which found it hard to get work. Their debut 45, Daffodil, was a Latin-style 45, which sounded like a commercial version of Santana but didn't sell. To add insult to injury the record company didn't like the name Sacrifice and credited the record to The Norman Haynes Band (even spelling Haines wrongly!)
    Their album, Den Of Iniquity, has gone on to become one of the most sought-after collector's items of the progressive era. The cover was striking and pictured a huge creature giving birth to miniature human beings and another huge creature chucking them through the air - presumably to their deaths. It seems likely that some stores didn't stock the album at the time on account of this artwork. Musically, the album boasted a very varied fare. It included a re-recorded version of Locomotive's classic, Mr. Armageddon, but its finest moments were two lengthy instrumentals, Rabbits and Haines' Life Is So Unkind. Curiously two tracks from the album (Finding My Way Home/Rabbits) were also released as a 45 credited to Avalanche.
    After a further solo 45, Give It To You Girl, which sounded like early Locomotive, Haines called it a day, leaving behind what is now a much cherished collector's item.
