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. If was a seminal band formed in 1969 as Britain’s answer to the pioneering U.S. bands Blood, Sweat and Tears and Chicago. Unlike these groups, however, If did not have a trumpet or trombone player but instead featured two saxophone players. Essentially a live band, true to its strong jazz influences, If was one of the few jazz-rock groups, both then and now, to feature solos by all the band members, not just by the lead instruments. Like early pioneers Chicago, If were difficult to classify with any of their contemporaries; they seemed out of place wherever they played, and were considered too jazzy when billed with groups with more of a rock orientation, and too bluesy or loud when billed with more jazz-oriented bands. They toured extensively in Europe and the United States during the early 1970s, with two U.S. tours during their first year, performing at most of the major venues and festivals of the day including Newport, Reading, Fillmore East (November 10, 1970, sharing the billing with Black Sabbath and Small Faces) and Fillmore West, Whisky A Go-Go, and The Marquee. They also shared billings with, amongst others, Miles Davis, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon and Leon Russell as well as many of the classic rock bands of the day, such as Cream, Traffic, Yes, Grand Funk Railroad, Ten Years After, KISS, Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. If 4 is the fourth album released by the band. It was first issued in 1972 and was the last album to feature the original recording line-up. Dennis Elliott – drums, J.W. Hodgkinson – vocals, percussion, John Mealing – keyboards, Dick Morrissey – saxophones, flute, Dave Quincy – saxophones, Jim Richardson – bass and Terry Smith – guitar

Shiva’s Headband, an early Texas psychedelic rock band, formed in Austin in 1967. The group was the house band at the Vulcan Gas Company, a late 1960s Austin nightclub. The band is credited with a significant role in the founding of the Armadillo World Headquarters. The bands first royalty check opened the club and hired Eddie Wilson as manager. Shiva's Headband was also the first band to perform there. Throughout the 1960s and early 1970s, the band played with touring acts such as Spirit, Steppenwolf, ZZ Top, Janis Joplin, Canned Heat and Steve Miller. Austin psychedelic bands contemporary to Shiva's Headband included the 13th Floor Elevators and Conqueroo. Shiva's Headband's Capitol Records album, Take Me To The Mountains, produced by bandleader Spencer Perskin with Fred Catero, became the first record released nationally by an Austin-based rock band. The album cover featured artwork by Jim Franklin. In 1973, the band had an onscreen performance in the film, The Thief Who Came to Dinner, a Houston-based production that starred Ryan O'Neal and Jacqueline Bisset.

Dion Francis DiMucci better known as Dion, is an American singer-songwriter whose work has incorporated elements of doo-wop, pop, rock and R&B styles. One of the most popular American rock and roll performers of the pre-British Invasion era, Dion had over a dozen Top 40 hits in the late 1950s and early 60s. He is best remembered for the exuberant 1961 singles "Runaround Sue", a No. 1 hit about a two-timing woman, and "The Wanderer", a No. 2 hit about a philandering man that was, somewhat accidentally, an answer song to "Runaround Sue". Due to changing public tastes and personal problems, Dion faltered in the mid-1960s; he regained popularity later in the decade and into the early 1970s with more mature, contemplative material such as "Abraham, Martin & John". He has continued making music to the present, earning reappraisals from critics who earlier dismissed him as a teen idol. Dion’s lost folk-rock masterpiece! Wonder Where I’m Bound is a fascinating glimpse into Dion’s lost renaissance and documents this major artist’s wandering into an artistically compelling new direction: a mélange of blues, folk, and plaintive balladry. In the wake of Dion’s 1968 commercial comeback with Abraham, Martin, and John, Columbia dusted off a collection of Dion Di Mucci s voluminous studio work for the label and dubbed it Wonder Where I m Bound. Producers Bil Keane and Jimmy Wisner also added orchestration.

Flower Travellin' Band is a Japanese heavy psych outfit that was first active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The band was initially started as a side-project by Yuya Uchida when he returned to Japan after visiting his friend John Lennon in England in the mid 60s, where he was introduced to various upcoming artists such as Cream, and Jimi Hendrix. Yuya wanted to introduce their work to a Japanese audience, and formed the "Flowers" as a cover band with various group sounds musicians, and two vocalists; male singer Chiba Hiroshi, and female singer Remi Aso. They released an album titled Challenge! in 1968, featuring covers of songs by Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Jefferson Airplane, and Big Brother and the Holding Company, in addition to an original song. They became friends with the Canadian band Lighthouse, and after meeting Paul Hoffert of Lighthouse at the Expo 70 festival in Osaka, they relocated to Canada where they performed with artists such as Dr. John, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer. While in Canada they recorded their second original album Made In Japan and signed a deal with Atlantic Records. Due to Wada becoming ill, drummer Paul Devon plays on some tracks on this album. The lyrics are all written by Yoko Nomura, the wife of the band's manager.
