Stuck behind the flambouyant Ian Anderson in Jethro Tull, it was only a matter of
time before Mick Abrahams would leave to follow his jazz inclinations. With the
creation of Blodwyn Pig in 1969, he succeeded in creating an easily accessible
jazz-rock fusion that deserved more public appreciation than it received.

Founded by Al Kooper in 1967, he left the band shortly after recording their first
album. He was replaced by Canadian blues singer, Clayton Thomas. Unusual for the time,
the band included a horn section in an effort to create a jazz-rock fusion. It worked
and their style was much copied throughout the sixties and early seventies.
When Clayton-Thomas left, the band fell apart but was reformed by Bobby Colomby, the
only original member, in the early seventies. Although it may have been quite
successful, the original spark had gone and they were merely trading on past

Randy Holden - guitar, 1968; Dick Peterson - bass, vocals; Leigh Stephens - guitar,

Sixties psychedelic thrash band specialising in high volume, distortion and
feedback. The first album carried liner notes from Owsley. On the vinyl itself, the
highlight was a manic version of "Summertime Blues".
Unfortunately their style was seen by many as a cross between Hendrix and Cream
and they suffered as a result. Definitely a west coast cult band, ignored elsewhere.

Dan Aykroyd (Elwood Blues); John Belushi ("Joliet" Jake Blues); Steve Cropper -
guitar; Donald "Duck" Dunn - bass; Steve Jordan - drums, vocals; Matt Murphy -
guitar; Paul Schaffer - keyboards, vocals.
Originally nothing more than a warm-up routine for the hit US TV series,
"Saturday Night Live", Aykroyd and Belushi recruited some of America's finest session
men. In September 1978, they recorded a live album that went platinum and spawned
a US chart hit.
In 1980, director John Landis was brought in to capture the excitement of this
cult band. Unfortunately, the resulting "Blues Brothers" movie was not a box office
smash. When Belushi died in 1982, the band continued with Eddie Floyd as the vocalist.
According to Long John Baldry, the first white electric blues band.
Formed in 1961. Members from 1961 to 1967 included: Ginger Baker, Long John Baldry,
Graham Bond, Jack Bruce, Eric Burdon, Cycil Davis, Davey Graham, Dick
Heckstall-Smith, Lee Jackson, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Paul Jones, Zoot Money,
Keith Richards, John Surman, Danny Thompson, Charlie Watts and many, many more.

guitar; Steve Katz - guitar, harmonica; Al Kooper - guitar, organ, vocals; Andy
Andy Kulberg - bass, flute, piano.
New York's contribution to the rock scene of the mid-60's. Actually,
they could play anything, which isn't surprising considering Kalb was
thought to be the best folk guitarist around. No one at that time had
heard of Al Kooper before. Kalb disappeared in 1967, and Kooper was
doing other things most of the time, so the band collapsed.
Kulberg organized the remainder into Sea Train, while Kooper started Blood, Sweat
