The Straydogs.

The different line-up of The Straydogs:

Dennis Lim-bass.
Jimmy Appudurai-Chua-lead guitar.
Lim Thian Soon-lead guitar.
William Tan-lead guitar.
Jeffrey Low-rhythm guitar.
Lawrence Lim-vocals.
Terry Tan-vocals.
Amir Shamsudin-drums.
James Tan-drums.
Lawrence Koh-drums.

The Straydogs were a 60s Singaporean pop, blues band in a class of it's own.
They were ahead of their times, composed and wrote their songs which are raw, passionate and bluesy reminiscing of the early Yardbirds.

The harp work by Ronnie Knekenbeek is just great!

All three songs are collector's item.

1. Repent 2. Mum's too pampering 3. Freedom.

Badger-One Live Badger.

Tony Kayes-(ex-Flash, Yes)-keyboards, mellotron.
David Foster (ex The Warriors)-bass, vocals.
Roy Dyke (ex Ashton, Garner & Dyke)-drums.
Brian Parrish-electric guitar, vocals.

Badger was a progressive English rock band from the early 70s founded by Tony Kayes and David Foster.

This live album is their first album and was released in 1973 under the Atco label.

Music and songs are like an extension of Yes with more funky keyboards interacting with bluesy guitar licks and is a real high energy live set.

My fave song is "Wind of change"

Rock Art cover by Roger Dean.

Side One: 1. Wheel of fortune 2. Fountain 3. Wind of change (video).

Side Two: 1. River 2. The Preacher 3. On the way home.
