Dave ‘Clem’ Clempson played a role in all three groups.

Bakerloo were originally formed as the Bakerloo Blues Line in 1967, at the outset of the blues boom spearheaded by Cream. A power trio similar to the latter outfit, they also incorporated some of the artier elements of pop music from that period — Dave “Clem” Clempson played solid, bluesy lead guitar, but he also doubled on harpsichord and piano as well as providing the mouth harp, while Terry Poole played bass and Keith Baker played drums.  They released a heavy album in 1969.

They made all the right moves as a performing outfit, courtesy of their manager, Jim Simpson (who also handled Black Sabbath, known as Earth at the time) — he organized a U.K. tour, dubbed “Big Bear Folly” (which later became the title of a Bakerloo song) which had Bakerloo, Earth, Locomotive, and Tea and Symphony playing throughout the country.

Clempson left to join Colosseum in 1969, the year of their album ‘Valentine Suite’ .
He also helped out Tea & Symphony on their album ‘An Asylum For The Musically Insane’ (1969).
Gus Dudgeon produced Bakerloo’s and Tea and Symphoy’s albums, which were both released on Harvest.


“When “Polk Salad Annie” blared from transistor radio speakers in the summer of 1969, the first thought was of  CCR, for Tony Joe White’s s swamp rock bore more than a passing resemblance to the sound John Fogerty  whipped up on  Bayou Country and Green River. But White was the real thing — he really was from the bayou country of Louisiana, while Fogerty’ss bayou country was conjured up in Berkeley, CA. Plus, White had a mellow baritone voice that sounded like it had been dredged up from the bottom of the Delta. Besides “Annie,” side one of this album includes several other White originals. The best of these are “Willie and Laura Mae Jones,” a song about race relations with an arrangement similar to “Ballad of Billie Joe,” and “Soul Francisco,” a short piece of funky fluff that had been a big hit in Europe in 1968. “Aspen, Colorado” presages the later “Rainy Night in Georgia,” a White composition popularized by  Brook Benton. The second side consists of covers of contemporary hits, with the funky “Who’s Making Love” and “Scratch My Back” faring better than the slow stuff.
