Did all of the band have their solo time in it? Maybe not J.W. Ho J.W. Hodkinson/Hodgkinson.

JW became John when he performed on Darryl Way's Wolf's third album....

[I wonder how Darryl is health wise - the last time I saw Curved Air (2008?) he was too ill to perform and they had a replacement.

I note from Wiki that fortunately the lad is still with us

Yes.



Solid bass line. Flute is good, but the sax blows it away.

The remasters have certainly brought up the bass guitar - nice. Very nice

JW is an acquired taste - but I love his voice

Dick Morrisey is indeed an excellent musician.


Also don't forget the man on tubs went on to form Foreigner.....

Good on ya Dennis



I am riffling through rock mags 1973-79, and it is simply ASTOUNDING how many Bad Company-lite bands there were full of second-and third-hand British musicians -- Detective, Champion, Boxer, Streetwalkers, Axis Point, The Dukes, Sharks, Hummingbird, British Lions, etc etc. All demanding American attention and mostly not getting same.

Really like the decision to have the guitar soloing beneath the vocal at the end. Adds another layer.

Yes, that bass is thunderous

Jim Richardson doesn't ever get much of a mention.

Same as Mealing on keyboards

Yes and yes re: Deke Chris

John Mealing went on to join Strawbs following the departure of John Hawken
