The Herd - 1968 - Paradise Lost

Herd was an English psychedelic pop rock group, that came to prominence in the late 1960s. They launched the career of Peter Frampton and scored three UK top twenty hits. The record label Parlophone dropped them after several unsuccessful singles, and they subsequently signed to Fontana. Once there the songwriters Ken Howard and Alan Blaikley, who had been largely responsible for a string of hits by Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich, orchestrated for them a unique blend of pop and flower power. After a UK Singles Chart near-miss with "I Can Fly" (1967), the haunting "From The Underworld", based on the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, reached Number 6 later that year with help from copious plays on pirate radio. It was followed by "Paradise Lost", which made it up to Number 15 in 1968. Frampton left by the end of 1968 to form Humble Pie with Steve Marriott. The remaining Bown, Spinetti and Taylor made another flop single, "The Game", then, minus Taylor, formed the short-lived Judas Jump with Mike Smith and Allen Jones, saxophonists from Amen Corner, and Welsh vocalist Adrian Williams. Taylor, who became a disc jockey, and Steele, reunited briefly for a one-off single "You've Got Me Hangin' From Your Lovin' Tree" in June 1971, to almost universal lack of interest. By the late 1970s, Bown had become a member of the UK rockers, Status Quo.
