If was an exceptional English band composed of many of the best English musicians of the early 70's including, reed players Dave Quincy and Dick Morrissey, and guitarist Terry Smith.

It was quite a group of musicians.  Morrissey and Smith had both won Melody Maker best jazz poll honours. Drummer Dennis Elliott went on to fame in the band Foreigner. John Mealing was an exceptional jazz-styled keyboard player and J.W. Hodgkinson a wonderful vocalist who nevertheless did not fit the rock style necessary to crack the top American market. And that’s a real shame, as so many listeners never got to hear this wonderful band.
