Total UK sales were 6,520,171, and their best selling single, "Merry Xmas Everybody", sold more than 1 million copies worldwide.The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Music commented that with Holder's powerful vocals and guitarist Dave Hill's equally arresting dress sense, Slade were one of the most successful British chart bands of the 1970s, scoring seventeen consecutive Top 20 hits. They are well known for the deliberate misspelling of their song titles, and for the song "Merry Xmas Everybody" (first released in December 1973), now one of the most iconic Christmas pop songs in the United Kingdom.

Orpheus is a Worcester, Massachusetts-based rock band that enjoyed popularity in the 1960s and early 1970s. In recent years there has been a resurgence of interest in the avant guard band. Original members included guitarist/vocalists Bruce Arnold and Jack McKennes, bass guitarist Eric "The Snake" Gulliksen, and drummer Harry Sandler but many others have since been a part of the group. Orpheus recorded three albums and four singles for MGM Records produced by musical legend Alan Lorber, including their best known hit, Can’t Find The Time, though it was later work that came to actually define the band.This debut album and a single "Can’t Find The Time" were released in January 1968, and the group played a few small clubs in Chicago, Detroit, and Philadelphia, before making their official debut in late February of that year at the Bitter End in Greenwich Village. Shortly after, the group opened for Cream at a concert at Brandeis University.

Bakerloo (previously The Bakerloo Blues Line) was an English heavy blues-rock trio, established by Staffordshire guitarist David "Clem" Clempson, Terry Poole and others in the late 1960s, at the high point of the influence of The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream. Although the group was prominent only for around a year (1968-9) and released only one album it played an important part in the history of the genre, especially in view of its members' subsequent involvement with Colosseum, Humble Pie, May Blitz, Graham Bond, Vinegar Joe, Judas Priest and Uriah Heep. The album Bakerloo was further promoted by the inclusion of the long, heavy slow blues "This Worried Feeling" on the Harvest double sampler album Picnic - A Breath of Fresh Air and by BBC recordings for radio. The album was produced by Gus Dudgeon. Last Blues was a heavy rocker, Son of Moonshine a driving metal blues. Other tracks contained "progressive" classical and jazz elements. 01 - Big Bear Ffolly 02 - Bring It On Home 03 - Drivin Bachwards 04 - Last Blues 05 - Gang Bang 06 - This Worried Feeling 07 - Son Of Moonshine 08 - Once Upon A Time 09 - This Worried Feeling Ii LINK
Twice as Much was composed of David Skinner and Andrew Rose and were harmony singers who also wrote much of their own material. They were signed to Immediate Records, which was run by The Rolling Stones manager, Andrew Loog Oldham. The pair recorded four singles ("Sittin' on a Fence" b/w "Baby I Want You"; "Step Out of Line" / "Simplified"; "True Story" / "You're So Good For Me"; "Crystal Ball" / "Why Can't They All Go And Leave Me Alone") and two albums, Own Up and That's All (featuring Vashti Bunyan) between 1966 and 1968 for Immediate. Most of these recordings were pop in the Peter and Gordon/Chad and Jeremy mold, with light orchestral pop/rock arrangements, that sometimes employed a touch of the baroque. Their only UK Top 40 success was a cover of the Mick Jagger and Keith Richards composition "Sittin' on a Fence" (1966). The Stones released it a year later. 01 - Sitting On A Fence 02 - Hey Girl 03 - Listen 04 - You're So Good To Me 05 - Green Circles 06 - Life Is But Nothing-Happy Times-Do You Wanna Dance 07 - True Story 08 - Simplified 09 - Step Out Of Line 10 - You'll Never Get To Heaven 11 - Crystal Ball 12 - Coldest Night Of The Year LINK
