    Fronted by vocalist Linda Hoyle, supported by guitarist Mike Jupp, bassist Mo Foster, organist Lynton Naiff and drummer Grant Serpell, Affinity were one of several UK prog/jazz-rock groups signed up by the influential Vertigo Records. But altough the band's seven track debut was well received by the critics it didn't dissuade the group from splitting up soon after its release in 1970. Linda Hoyle continued to record for Vertigo, releasing the LP "Pieces of Me" in 1971, on which she was backed by Chris Spedding and Soft Machine members John Marshall and Karl Jenkins. The LP was a much more varied one than Affinity's, ranging from ballads to hard rock, and it was commercial success. Drummer Grant Serpell went on join Sailor, organist Lynton Naiff gigged with Toe Fat, the band led by ex Rebel Rouser Cliff Bennett. -- Andras Sumegi
    Affinity were a jazz-rock band whose sole album is nice but not particularly strong or memorable (my impression at least). The arrangements are dominated by organ and vocalist Linda Hoyle's undeniably strong voice. The highlight is an 11-minute version of "All Along the Watchtower” with plenty of solos. The album is available on Repertoire Records CD, which also includes two single tracks, thus containing the band’s whole recorded output in one package. -- Kai Karmanheimo
