…The band released it's critically-acclaimed first album on the infamous Vertigo label and one of their earliest advocates was the Radio 1 DJ Anne Nightingale who proclaimed that Linda was "the girl most likely to succeed in 1970."
Lynton and Mo started to write for a second album and the band was lined up for a USA tour but in January 1971 Linda announced she had decided to leave the business.
Until now all that remained from the band in terms of released material was that first album. From the group's own archives comes a further five unreleased bonus tracks as well as the first LP and both sides of the single.
The original album exchanges hands these days for ?100 plus. This Angel Air release includes informative sleeve notes from band member Mo Foster and photographs from his own personal archives.
This album will appeal to all lovers of well-played jazz/rock and blues, with Linda Hoyle's vocal style not dissimilar to that of Curved Air's Sonja Kristina in the seventies or classic Grace Slick.
