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)

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.
