AllMusic Review by Dave Thompson

The third in the Backtrack series collections of archetypal U.K. psych 45s, all drawn from the Track Records archive, Backtrack 7 was released in November 1970, just six weeks after the death of the label's biggest name -- Jimi Hendrix, of course -- and well placed to soak up some of the attendant grief. Three Hendrix numbers appear, the album cuts "The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice" and "Long Hot Summer Night," and the Curtis Knight collaboration "How Would You Feel," a skillful rewrite of Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" that crept out as a Track 45 during 1967. The remainder of the set, too, seems intent on giving great value for the money. No less than three of its tracks had been summertime hit singles: the Who's "The Seeker" (present with its non-LP B-side, "Here for More"), Thunderclap Newman's "Accidents" (shorn and edited from the nine-minute drama that highlighted their album, but nonetheless astonishing for all that), and Marsha Hunt's version of Paul Simon's "Keep the Customer Satisfied." Less successful offerings from Arthur Brown and the absurdly underrated Bent Frame join another cut by Thunderclap Newman, while the collection wraps up by acknowledging Marc Bolan's recent rise to fame and throwing in a little nugget for his fans to drool over -- an (uncredited) appearance alongside Marsha Hunt on her spellbinding version of his own "Hippy Gumbo."

Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Four (1973) (Vinyl)

Year: 11 May 1973, Recorded February – March 1973, (LP 1973)

Wishbone Four is the fourth studio album by British rock band Wishbone Ash, released in 1973. It was a departure from their previous album, Argus, in that it lacked that recording's overall cohesion and atmosphere and the loose conceptual framework of a stately, pastoral and warring medieval England. Containing only hints of the extended twin-lead guitar harmonies, Wishbone Four's stylistic variety found its footing in acoustic folk elements in half of the eight-song set ("Ballad of the Beacon", "Everybody Needs a Friend", "Sorrel" and "Sing Out the Song"), two aggressive and melodic starters on each side of the vinyl release (Side 1: So Many Things to Say" and Side 2: "Doctor"), and the band's first use of horns on the semi-autobiographical "rave-up" touring song "No Easy Road".

Argus is the third album by the rock band Wishbone Ash. It is the most popular Wishbone Ash album and widely considered their greatest by fans and reviewers. It was named "Album of the Year" in the 1972 year-end issue of Sounds magazine. The album is medieval-themed, featuring a blend of progressive rock, folk, and hard rock, and is considered a landmark album in the progression of twin-lead guitar harmonisation later adopted by bands such as Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden. The sound engineer on Argus was Martin Birch, who also worked with Deep Purple, later with Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and other hard rock bands. The bulk of the melodies and lyrics were provided by bassist/lead vocalist Martin Turner, although all members contributed to the song arrangements.(Wikipedia)

Wishbone Ash is the first studio album by Wishbone Ash. The band's debut album became a reality when they were opening for Deep Purple in early 1970. Deep Purple guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was jamming during the band's soundcheck when Wishbone guitarist Andy Powell boldly plugged in and began jamming with Blackmore.
After the show, Blackmore recommended that MCA Records sign the band. Deep Purple producer Derek Lawrence produced this album, which features elements of blues, Jazz, progressive rock, and psychedelic improvisation. The album was a success and Wishbone Ash would soon become one of the most popular rock bands of the early 1970s. (Wikipedia)

Survival is Grand Funk Railroad's fourth studio album and was released in April 1971 by Capitol Records. It was produced by Terry Knight. Drummer Don Brewer was never happy with the drum sound on the album, due to Knight's insistence of having Brewer cover his drum heads with tea-towels, after seeing Ringo Starr using that technique in the Beatles' film Let It Be (1970).

Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich - If Music Be The Food Of Love (1966) (Vinyl)

Year: 16 December 1966 (LP 1966) Mono
Label: Fontana Records (UK), TL5388 687 929 TL
Style: Beat
Country: Wiltshire, England
Time: 31:10
Format: Flac Tracks 16/44,1 kHz
Size: 193 Mb

The band's story began in the late 50s when "the Dozies" as they are now affectionately called, came together from various bands of the Salisbury area. Trevor Davies (Dozy), then with the Beatnicks met Ian Amey (Tich) and persuaded him to leave his group Eddy and the Strollers to join the Beatnicks. A few months later David Harman (Dave Dee) from the Coasters and Boppers came in and Tich approached his school chum John Dymond (Beaky) who also was a member of the Big Boppers to join in as well.
"Ronnie Blonde and the Beatnicks" gigged extensively already with a repertoire of classic rockers and contemporary hits plus a few own numbers. One night their front man Ronnie did not show up and Dave ended up doing most of the lead vocals and eventually became their front man himself.
Their drummers came and went but finally around Christmas '61 it worked out with Michael Wilson (Mick) whom Dozy had met while travelling on the bus. In the meantime the band name had been changed to Dave Dee & the Bostons.
The boys had already given up their regular jobs as painters or car mechanics to become full-time musicians. Dave had been a policeman before and, as a Cadet was first on the scene of a car crash on April 17, 1960 that killed Eddie Cochrane and seriously injured Gene Vincent. A burst tyre had hurled their taxi into a lamppost near Chippenham, Wiltshire and Dave salvaged Eddie's Gretsch guitar. It was kept at the police station for a few weeks before being sent back to Eddie's family in the USA - after Dave had "had a good strum on it". photo Dave Dee as Policeman In 1962 Dave finally quit his job too, when the band went pro - but occasionally would recite the 'Policeman's Definitions' - required when making an arrest - just to surprise people and remind himself of those days.
