Vinegar Joe was a British R&B band in the early 1970s, who were best known for their live shows. The core members were lead singers Elkie Brooks and Robert Palmer, bassist Steve York, keyboard player Tim Hinkley and guitarist Pete Gage who also played piano. Conrad Isidore played drums on their first album Vinegar Joe. Their debut LP was released in April 1972. They released three albums on Island Records in the UK and Atco Records in the U.S.. Although the band never achieved significant record sales, they toured extensively, playing numerous sell-out concerts, especially on the British university circuit. After the band dissolved at the end of 1973, both Brooks and Palmer went on to enjoy success as solo musicians. Pete Gage became a record producer working with a range of successful musicians like Joan Armatrading and specialising in upcoming rockability and punk bands such as Restless, King Kurt and others.
