Music Millennium

Digitally remastered edition of this 1973 album by the British Rock outfit. Formed in December 1971, the band was the brainchild of former Love Affair vocalist Steve Ellis. Teaming up with celebrated keyboard player Zoot Money, the band took a harder Rock direction with Jazz overtones. The line-up of the band was completed with the addition of guitarist Andy Gee, drummer Dave Lutton (formerly of Heavy Jelly and the Grease Band) and bass player Jim Leverton (formerly with Fat Mattress and Juicy Lucy). Championed by former Jimi Hendrix Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell, the band secured a contract with Epic Records in 1972 and recorded their debut album the same year. Their follow up album, WHY NOT?, was produced by Mike Vernon and saw Nick South replace Jim Leverton, but Ellis continued the fine musical direction established on their first record. This edition has been remastered from the original Epic master tapes and features a booklet that restores the original album artwork and includes a new essay.
