Blonde on Blonde - 1969 - Contrasts

Blonde on Blonde was a guitar-led psychedelic rock group from South Wales. The band was originally formed in Newport in 1967 by vocalist/guitarist Ralph Patel, drummer Les Hicks, bassist/organist Richard Hopkins and guitarist/sitar player Gareth Johnson. The band was named after Bob Dylan's 1966 album of the same name. They disbanded in early 1972. Even though they enjoyed strong reviews from music critics and achieved massive exposure playing before gigantic crowds at the 1969  Isle of Wight festival (coincidently headlined by Dylan), they never managed to generate much in the way of sales. In 1968 the quartet left Wales for London. Playing clubs such as London's Middle Earth generated publicity for the band, and Pye Records eventually signed the band. Contrasts, released in 1969 and produced by Barry Murray, has been described as progressive. The album included the Robin Williamson covers "No Sleep Blues" and "I Need My Friend". A personal favorite was Patel's hysterical "Conversationally Making The Grade". Also included was a cover of The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby".
