Pickettywitch was a British pop group. The original members were Polly Brown (vocals), Chris Warren (vocals), Bob Brittain (organ), Martin Bridges (guitar), Mike Tomich (bass guitar) and Keith Hall (drums). Bridges and Tomich were replaced later in 1970 by Peter Hawkins (guitar) and Brian Stuart (bass), who would later be replaced by Paul Risi (guitar) and Paul Riordan (bass). The name Pickettywitch is often said to have been taken from a Cornish village through which their eventual lead singer, Polly Brown, had passed with her sister; in fact, there is no such village, though there is a pub of that name at Yeovil in Somerset. Pickettywitch was signed by record producer John Macleod to Pye Records and released their debut single, "You've Got Me So I Don't Know" b/w "Solomon Grundy" in July 1969.Two further singles also made the UK chart in that year - these were "(It's Like A) Sad Old Kinda Movie" (again written by Macaulay and Mcleod) (#16), and "Baby I Won't Let You Down" (written by Les Reed and Geoff Stephens) (#27).In 1970, "Days I Remember" was received radio airplay. The single did not appear on record charts, but "That Same Old Feeling" reached #67 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the summer of that same year. Brown left for a solo career in late 1972. 01 You Got Me So I Don't Know 02 Solomon Grundy 03 That Same Old Feeling 04 Maybe We've Been Loving Too Long 05 (It's Like A) Sad Old Kinda Movie 06 Times 07 Baby I Won't Let You Down 08 Please Bring Her Back Home 09 Take Away the Emptiness Too 10 Then It Will Be 11 Shame Shame 12 Sound of Silence 13 I'll Say Bye Bye 14 Days I Remember 15 Two Hearts Are Better Than One 16 There He Goes 17 This Day 18 Waldo P.

Fairfield Parlour were an English progressive rock band that recorded in the late 1960s into the early 1970s.

The members were Peter Daltrey (vocals, keyboards), Eddy Pumer (guitars), Steve Clark (bass, flute) and Dan Bridgman (drums). The band released several singles and one critically acclaimed full album, From Home to Home, which is now considered a classic.

Pittsburgh power trio Fresh Blueberry Pancake formed in 1968, comprising singer/bassist Tony Impavido, guitarist John Behrens, and drummer Geoff Rydell. After two years of local gigging, the group built up enough of a fan base and enough original material to record a demo tape, and in 1970 they self-released Heavy, issued in a pressing of just 54 copies, the record is now much sought-after among collectors of plodding, monolithic acid rock. (The Shadoks label reissued Heavy in 2003.) After the album's release the group abbreviated its name to Pancake, dissolving in 1972. (Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide)
