    Tapestry of Delights:

    Something of a supergroup, Kim Gardner had been in The Birds and Creation prior to joining this band and Tony Ashton and Ron Dyke had been in The Remo Four. Their debut album lacked a certain amount of verve but was liberally laced with R&B influenced compositions and they scored an unexpected hit with the goodtime rock 'n' blues song Resurrection Shuffle in 1971.

    Their second album explored a range of soul-flavoured rock styles with lyrics that often reflected on the evils of war. Eric Clapton and George Harrison guested on one of its better moments, I'm Your Spiritual Breadman and Chicken Shack's Stan Webb played guitar on another, Let It Roll. The final album was less political and more personal than the predecessor. Musically we're talking blues-rock here with the occasional track which veers more towards jazz-rock.

    After their demise Tony Ashton went on to play for Medicine Head and was briefly in Family before teaming up with Deep Purple's Jon Lord in Ashton and Lord. Kim Gardner was later in Badger.
