Eat Me in St. Louis is the third album by British progressive pop/rock band It Bites. The album title was also reused for a compilation album by the band, aimed at the US market. Eat Me in St. Louis saw It Bites move away from the progressive rock and pop influences of their two previous albums and towards a more hard rock sound with more straightforward compositions and a heavier, rawer sound. The album was recorded in Munich and produced by Reinhold Mack, best known for his work with Queen.

The Big Lad in the Windmill is the debut album of British progressive pop/rock band It Bites. The album reached No. 35 in the UK album charts and produced three singles - "All in Red", "Calling All The Heroes" and "Whole New World". All three of these charted, although "Calling All the Heroes" was by far the most successful, reaching No. 6 in the UK charts and remaining the band's biggest (and only significant hit). "All in Red" was the band's modestly-charting debut single: "Whole New World" was the follow-up to "Calling All the Heroes" but did not repeat its success.

The Newcastle quartet's debut album followed hard on the heels of two superlative hit singles. Beyond a passing affection for a Slade-style stomp, "Don't Do That" and "All Because of You" have little in common with the then-prevalent glam sound, but still their pounding hard rock ethos slipped effortlessly into the mood of the day, to portray Geordie as the unabashed hard rockers that even the teenies could enjoy. (Nazareth pulled off a similar coup around the same time.) Following in those same stack-heeled footsteps, Hope You Like It makes few concessions to the band's newfound fame, a raw and raucous slam through 11 songs that only let the bombast slip when they fall into the closing clown time of the traditional "Geordie's Lost His Liggie," a mad singalong that is absolutely captivating.

Geordie's second album, 1974's Don't Be Fooled by the Name, was a bit of a letdown after their debut, which merged the swagger of hard rock with the tuneful bombast of blue-collar glam acts typified by Slade. In some respects, Don't Be Fooled suggests Geordie were aiming for something a bit more mature and adventurous than they achieved on their debut, and they didn't entirely fail – they reveal a tough, bluesy side on their cover of "House of the Rising Sun," a number that suits Brian Johnson's industrial-strength pipes, and the "St. James Infirmary" lift in opening cut "Goin' Down" leans toward the same direction.

This is a surprisingly laid back, almost dreamy album which has a lovely innocent quality which permeates through the majority of the tracks…Great stuff from one of the better, and most original bands from the 70's…it's been re-released…with three bonus tracks which make it worth buying if you already have the original crackly vinyl… A beauty of a buy if you like folky 70's rock.

After the dissolution of Savage Grace, John Seanor and Ron Koss released this album with the help of King Errisson (congas, percussion), John Seiter (drums), and John Sebastian (harmonica). The album is described by timeshifter at RYM as “semi-funky A.O.R. with some bluesy cuts, some horns and harmonica, Jagger influenced vocals, decent song writing, and some rural moves”.

After almost half a year in the making, The Birthday Party was released in the UK during October 1968 and was one of the first albums to be housed in a gatefold sleeve (the first of course was by the Beatles). Jeff, Greg, Dave and Roger lounge rather dapperly around an oversized invitation asking one and all to come to their first birthday party.

This edition is released in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the group's signing to EMI Records.

Fool's Mate is the debut solo album by Peter Hammill of progressive rock band Van der Graaf Generator. The title is both a chess and tarot reference. It was produced by Trident Studios' in-house producer John Anthony. The album was recorded in 1971, in the midst of one of Van der Graaf Generator's most prolific periods. Hammill used the album to record a backlog of songs which were much shorter and simpler than his Van der Graaf Generator material, and declared on the original album sleeve: "This isn't intended to be any kind of statement of my present musical position, but at the same time, it is an album which involves a great deal of me, the person, basically a return to the roots." In 2005 the album was issued in remastered form by EMI Virgin Records, supplemented with bonus demo recordings of several songs.

Recorded in April 1972, "A Story Ended" was the debut solo album by Colosseum saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith. Recorded upon the demise of Colosseum, the sessions featured contributions by Jon Hiseman, Mark Clarke, Chris Farlowe & Dave Greenslade of the band, along with Graham Bond (of whose Organization Dick was a member alongside Jack Bruce & Ginger Baker), Chris Spedding and lyrical offerings from Pete Brown. A superb example of Jazz influenced Progressive rock, the album appeared on Bronze Records in 1972 and is now hailed as a classic of the genre.
