THE HOLLIES: FOR CERTAIN BECAUSE
When For Certain Because (released as Stop Stop Stop in America) came out in 1966, most pop bands were determined to create music that went deeper than traditional songs about true love and heartache. This development struck a chord with The Hollies, and For Certain Because became the first of three albums that found them at their most innovative and inspiring. Band members Graham Nash, Allan Clarke, and Tony Hicks became adept at composing songs that retained The Hollies’ trademark harmonies and effervescent melodies, but placed them in new surroundings. Like Evolution and Butterfly, which followed shortly after, it was pretty much flawless.

MOBY GRAPE, 1967
To this day Moby Grape’s electrifying debut not only stands the test of time, but heads and shoulders above even their most celebrated contemporaries’ best albums.
The fact that Moby Grape has been lost to the annals of rock music’s history will always be one of its most shameful sins. As a larger rock music community, we are all responsible for this calamity. Moby Grape really had it all: exceptionally talented songwriters, incredible guitar players, a rhythm section on par with any in the world and a unique diversity that spoke volumes in the relatively streamlined San Francisco psychedelic scene of the 1960’s. (…)http://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/61587/Moby-Grape-Moby-Grape/

JETHRO TULL,  MICK ABRAHAMS (Blodwyn Pig, Neil Christian)

Jethro Tull’s second album, Stand Up, marked an early turning point for the band with the addition of guitarist Martin Barre along with Ian Anderson’s introduction of folk-rock influences to the group’s blues-based sound. Released in the summer of 1969, Stand Up rose quickly to the top of the U.K. Albums Chart, and eventually earned gold certification in the U.S. Parlophone  releases a deluxe version of the album as a 2CD/1DVD set . “STAND UP (THE ELEVATED EDITION”  is available on November 18th 2016. ( http://jethrotull.com/jethro-tulls-stand-up-the-elevated-edition).

By replacing guitarist Mick Abrahams, a blues purist, with the relatively inexperienced but open-minded Martin Barre, Anderson was free to move beyond the British blues of the band’s debut album, This Was, and incorporate pastoral English folk, frenetic proto-jazz-fusion, blistering hard rock, along with classical and Middle Eastern music into a fresh new potpourri, laying an important brick in the foundation of what the UK press was starting to call “progressive rock.” (http://web.musicaficionado.com/main.html#!/article/The_Real_Story_Behind_Jethro_Tulls_Stand_Up_by_joebosso

Jethro Tull co-founder MICK ABRAHAMS left the band and formed BLODWYN PIG, then went solo. Before Jethro Tull, he was in Screaming Lord Sutch’s backing band The Savages and Neil Christian’s Crusaders. NEIL CHRISTIAN is on our playlist too (he had a huge hit with ‘That’s Right’).
