Cactus is an American hard rock supergroup, formed in 1970. Cactus was initially conceived as early as late 1969 by the Vanilla Fudge rhythm section of bassist Tim Bogert and drummer Carmine Appice with guitarist Jeff Beck and singer Rod Stewart (also from the already dissolved Jeff Beck Group). However, Beck had an automobile accident and was out of the music scene for over a year and Stewart joined Ronnie Wood in Faces. Early 1970 Appice and Bogert brought in blues guitarist Jim McCarty from Mitch Ryder's Detroit Wheels and The Buddy Miles Express, and singer Rusty Day from Amboy Dukes. Cactus is the first album by the band, released in 1970 under the Atco label. It includes original songs as well as cover of Mose Allison's version of a blues standard, "Parchman Farm" and another one, Willie Dixon's "You Can't Judge a Book by the Cover".

If was a progressive rock band formed in Britain in 1969. Referred to by Billboard as "unquestionably the best of the so-called jazz-rock bands", in the period spanning 1970-1975, they produced 8 studio-recorded albums and did some 17 tours of Europe, the US and Canada. Waterfall is another fine release from this unjustly ignored jazz-rock aggregation from the U.K. This transitional release, with half the tracks featuring the original lineup and the other half with a new rhythm section, is structured much the same as their earlier albums, with extended instrumental solos tucked inside of pop-rock structured songs. Although a couple of generic-sounding rock albums followed under the If name, Waterfall was, for all intents and purposes, the end of the band. Cliff Davies - Drums, John Mealing - Organ, Piano, Dick Morrissey - Flute, Soprano, Sax (Tenor), Vocals, Dave Quincy - Alto, Piano (Electric), Sax (Tenor), Dave Wintour - Bass, Vocals and Jim Richardson - Bass.

Fair Weather was a British rock band formed in 1970 by former Amen Corner guitarist and vocalist, Andy Fairweather Low. They are best known for their track, "Natural Sinner". The band evolved from a split within Amen Corner. While saxophone players Alan Jones and Mike Smith went on to form Judas Jump, Fairweather Low led Dennis Byron (drums), Blue Weaver (organ), Clive Taylor (bass) and Neil Jones (guitar) into the new band, Fair Weather. The band scored a UK Singles Chart Number 6 hit with "Natural Sinner"/"Haven't I Tried (To Be A Good Man)" in 1970 and recorded one album, Beginning From An End. From the latter were drawn three more singles, "Lay It On Me"/"Looking for the Red Label Pt. 2", "Tutti Frutti"/"Road To Freedom" and "Poor Man's Bum A Run"/"Don't Mess With Cupid". None charted and Fair Weather disbanded in 1971.

Heavy Psychedelic Rock/Jazz Rock band from Birmingham, Warwickshire, UK. Some sources say that Hannibal is the continuation of Bakerloo Blues Line (later Bakerloo) but these two bands were trios, and the line-up is totally different, with no common members with Hannibal. Alex Boyce (vocals), Jack Griffiths (bass), Bill Hunt (Hammond and french horn), Adrian Ingram (guitar), John Parkes (drums) and Cliff Williams (saxo and clarinet). "Their sole album, has become a minor collectable and is a Van der Graaf Generator-style progressive, housed in an odd gatefold sleeve. The vocalist is strongly influenced by Family's Roger Chapman whilst their music is strong, pleasant, jazz rock."(OPP)

01 - Look Upon Me
02 - Winds Of Change
03 - Bend For A Friend
04 - 1066
05 - Wet Legs
06 - Winter

"Baby Grandmothers were a short-lived Swedish band, but one of the most prolific and unique psychedelic, modal, experimental power-trios to emerge out of the Scandinavian psychedelic underground-scene in 1967. Recommended highly for all fans of raw psychedelic, reactive improvisational imaginative rock music, and also those interested of original 1960's Swedish "Prog" scene. This CD is only available together with the book "The Encyclopedia of Swedish Progressive Music 1967-1979". All track was previously unreleased and was recorded by Anders Lind at the Filips café, Stockholm, sep. 30th, 1967. Kenny Håkansson / guitars, Pelle Ekman / drums and Bella Linnarsson / bass.

01 - Opus 1 Ascending
02 - Opus 2 Floating
03 - Opus 3 Descending

Alexander's Timeless Bloozband was a Psych Rock/Blues Rock band from San Diego, formed by Charles Lamont, Carl Lockhart and Larry Marks. "Most of the band was from the South Bay - Surfers from Manhattan, Hermosa & Redondo Beaches". "They played in the Ventura/Santa Barbara area a lot circa 1967" This album is pretty crude. It’s recorded live (though there’s no audience sounds) and has a sleazy blues vibe that’s kind of appealing even though the music is only OK. There are a few standards, including "Killing Floor” and a jazzy instrumental take on "My Favorite Things.” There’s one great rock song, "Sloppy Drunk,” that has a Pretty Things-like vocal and some terrific, wild, loud lead guitar.[AM]
